Starring Dick Flavin
Directed by Richard McElvain
Longtime Boston political authority and veteran commentator Dick Flavin has an insider’s prospective of Thomas P. “Tip” O’Neill, personally as well as professionally. According to Tip is filled with history, humor and even a bit of music. Audiences go back in time with Tip from his life growing up in Cambridge where he entered local politics, to the Massachusetts State House, and eventually to the White House.
For the play, Flavin drew from Tip’s own words, those of his colleagues, Congressional records and from researching many writings, including John A. Farrell’s biography. “Tip O’Neill was the most colorful political figure of his time, and one of the most significant. He crossed swords and lifted a glass with all the giants of the age; Reagan, Kennedy, Johnson, Nixon and more, “ says Flavin. He adds, “It was a challenge to write about, and will be a challenge to portray, such a unique character.”
