Star of stage and screen, Brian Dennehy (Death of a Salesman, Long Day's Journey Into Night, Cocoon) delivers a stunning performance as Thomas Dunne in this profound and poignant drama. Set in an Irish county mental home circa the early 1930s, 75-year-old Thomas Dunne's mind lapses in and out of lucidity as he ruminates on a string of bittersweet memories. Between thoughts of his youth to thoughts of his adult life, with his wife and children, to memories of his time as the head of Dublin's Metropolitan Police, Dunne struggles to make sense of his life as the world around him falls apart. Already a story of unquestionable power, The Steward of Christendom is shaped into something unforgettable by Dennehy's extraordinary performance. Learn More

While there were some good moments in the play, overall, I cannot recommend this play to others. The writing and the story did not really resonate with me and the performances were OK but not great. All in all, a forgettable evening.
The uniquely Southern California experience is celebrated in candid, intimate song cycles of a Mexican-American man growing up in Carlsbad and a San Diego native reminiscing of her encounters with the Mexican community. This world premiere event is directed by multiple Tony Award®-nominee Graciela Daniele, and features Tony Award®-winner Michele Pawk (Hollywood Arms, Hairspray, Cabaret) and Julio Monge (Twelfth Night, The Capeman, Man of La Mancha).
Commissioned by Center Theatre Group, this unconventional, beautifully crafted chamber musical, with book and lyrics by Tony Award®-nominee Ellen Fitzhugh (Paper Moon, Grind, Paradise Found) and music by multiple Tony Award®-nominee Michael John LaChiusa (The Wild Party, Marie Christine, Chronicle of a Death Foretold) is a masterful interplay of narrative and melody that remains true to its characters. Their stories become our stories: adventurous and romantic, honest and surprising and resonant.
This show is recommended for those ages 13 and older.
