In the poignant tragicomedy of emigration and exile that is Philadelphia, Here I Come!, an Irishman spends one last night in his home of Ballybeg before departing for the shores of the United States. As he goes about his small-town rituals for the final time, the moody Gar O'Donnell engages with his rambunctious alter ego, a constant stage presence bent on adventure and fantasy. But in Gar's true heart lies a tender ache for the people he is leaving behind, including the girl he loved and lost and his widowed father, who is unable to express his true feelings about his son's departure. In turns tender, mischievous, comedic and melancholic, Brian Friel's Philadelphia, Here I Come! is as moving and powerful as the day it premiered in 1964. Learn More

Well cast and exceptionally acted by each of the actors. The part of the younger brother was a standout. This play was unique in storyline and presentation.
Tongue and cheek at times, but always keeping the interest of the audience. Never...continued

About the Ticket Supplier: T. Schreiber Studio
The T. Schreiber Studio began in 1969 with Terry Schreiber teaching classes twice a week to twelve actors in a converted loft on the Upper East Side of New York City. Enrollment increased and the group began mounting productions in what were the early beginnings of New York City’s Off-Off Broadway movement and building its reputation of high quality productions and performances. The studio continued to grow, adding more faculty, more actors, and more plays and in the mid 70’s, drama critic Walter Kerr’s glowing review in the New York Times of Schreiber’s production of The Trip Back Down, brought the Studio much attention and packed houses. The Trip Back Down then moved to Broadway and John Cullum (Northern Exposure) was signed to do the lead. Throughout the 1980’s and into the 90’s the T. Schreiber Studio continued to produce good actors and good theater, adding Betty Buckley to its prestigious faculty and residing at 83 East Fourth Street, the burgeoning street of Off-Off Broadway. During that time Terry Schreiber continued his own directing career with two more Broadway shows: Devour the Snow and K-2, and numerous regional theater productions providing more casting opportunities for studio actors.
In 1996 the Studio moved to its current, renovated multi-use space on the 7th floor of 151 West 26th Street in New York’s lively Chelsea neighborhood. Classes and productions run continuously throughout the year.
