Audience participation makes or breaks the Wake. In other words, you get out of it what you put into it. Entertaining fun event.
Pre-show recorded music was too loud, Sunday, 3/11/12, 5 pm show.
We could not hear each other talk even when ...continued

Not very funny. Concept seemed great but jokes not so funny. Moments of funny but overall not so much.

Description

Directed by John Haynes

Musical Direction and Piano Accompaniment by Chad Dutton

Featuring Madde Gibba, Jerome Mayne, Stephen Pearce, Billie Jo Konze, Tyler Michaels, Tim Dybevik and Jason Bindas

Join the villagers of the beautiful fictional village of Grapplin, County Sligo, Ireland, as they tell tales, sing songs and mourn the passing of one of their own. You’ll be transported to the Emerald Isle to grieve as only the Irish can. You can share tales of your own experiences and misadventures with dear old Flanagan or simply enjoy the stories and songs of the locals as they recall life with “himself.” Once you have arrived in Grapplin, you’ll pay your respects to glowering Mother Flanagan and to poor grieving fiancée, Fiona Finn. Listen to a eulogy written by County Sligo’s best-known writer, Mickey Finn, and tip a pint with Brian Ballybunion, himself a fine weaver of tales. You can cross yourself with the blessings from St. Gregory’s parish priest, Father Damon Fitzgerald, or cross your fingers that local pagan Kathleen Mooney doesn’t cast a spell on you. Mayor Martin O’Doul will preside over the proceedings with an iron hand (and a parched throat).
