This show was fantastic! But be warned it isn't for everyone. I don't want to spoil anything, but if you can't handle violence and VERY dark humor then pass on this one,... continued

Quotes & Highlights

“If  Monty Python has ever tackled the issue of Irish terrorism, they might have created something as wild, as brilliant and as weirdly exhilarating as The Lieutenant of Inishmore_.”—_NY Daily News
“The good  people of Inishmore cordially invite you to watch them paint the town red — a  vivid, sticky red that comes, as the phrase goes, straight from the heart.“”Ben  Brantley_, The New York Times_":http://theater.nytimes.com/2006/02/28/theater/reviews/28inis.html?pagewanted=1

Description

Olivier  Award-winner Martin McDonagh (The Pillowman)  makes comedy from carnage in this highly theatrical — and unapologetically  bloody — romp.

Padraic (played by Chris Pine) is a handsome, dedicated terrorist deemed too mad for the IRA. He takes a break from torturing “valid targets” and blowing up fast food restaurants when he hears that his best friend in the world, a beloved cat, is doing poorly.

Critics raved and gasped over this 2006 Tony Award®  Best Play nominee. You can decide for yourself when the original Broadway director stages this daring and disturbingly intoxicating dark comedy.

Directed by Wilson Milam (Tony-nominated for directing the Broadway production of this play), the cast of The Lieutenant of Inishmore features (in alphabetical order) Ian Alda, Andrew Connolly, Coby Getzug, Seán G. Griffin, Kevin Kearns, Zoe Perry, Chris Pine and Brett Ryback.
