Review from Kel

I LOVE it - it is a MUST SEE! If you liked In Burges - you'll love this! The cast and direction - phenomenal - set - sound - special effects - equally phenomenal. Chris Pine is a standout – hooray for a bonafide movie-star that comes from theatre!

Review from Cybil Solyn

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, but if you don't mind those things then you are in for a great time. Pine is...continued

Review from Paul

We loved this play. Not at all what we were expecting. Many moments made us laugh out loud. Chris Pine and the cast are terrific.

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.
