Kiss Me, I'm Irish
Stories, not shots, fuel truly Irish celebrations of St. Patrick's Day. Be they hilarious, daring, spooky, sad or downright magical, stories -- told straight or wound around the notes of a lovely song -- are at the heart of every Irish party. Now Kiss Me, I'm Irish from the Portland Story Theater showcases the best of Gaelic gab during an evening of tales, songs, dance and music. Hosted by the incomparable Penny Walter, Kiss Me I'm Irish features storytellers Maura Conlon, Lawrence Howard and Lynne Duddy as well as dancer, singer and musician Brian O'Hairt and traditional Irish music by Innisfree with Brenda Scearcy and Jim Loewenherz. Come early to mingle with the performers, enjoy complimentary snacks and check out PST's new home, Alberta Abbey.
