Magic Time!: Outside Mullingar

When I walked out of Outside Mullingar—directed by Producing Artistic Director Mark A. Rhea with what seemed inspired grace—I knew that I had just seen Keegan at its best.

Broadway World: Outside Mullingar

John Patrick Shanley’s play is part family drama, part romantic comedy with an Irish twist. No matter how you slice it, it’s exceedingly charming and down-to-earth.

DC Metro Theatre Arts: Outside Mullingar

OUTSIDE MULLINGAR is a jewel of a play, best displayed in the intimacy of a theater like Keegan … a lyrical, heart-wrenching, and ultimately joyous tribute to those who stayed behind, tending the land that they loved,

Washington Post: Outside Mullingar

It’s vintage Shanley; the characters hold nothing back. Moonstruck savages might be a fair description of Shanley’s misfit romantics, and you’ll find yourself grinning as Keegan’s quartet adeptly taps the flinty, winsome style.

The Keegan Theatre presents John Patrick Shanley’s OUTSIDE MULLINGAR, opening on May 6, 2017, in Washington, DC. The production is directed by Keegan Producing Artistic Director Mark A. Rhea and runs through May 28, 2017.

“OUTSIDE MULLINGAR is quintessential Keegan,” says Rhea. “It covers subtle, gorgeous terrain within the human heart – and so sharply represents the rural communities and relationships of Ireland. The language is simple and deeply poetic at the same time, and the heartache, joy, and humor that Shanley captures in this intimate story is an incredible accomplishment. We can’t wait to share it with our audiences.”

Broadway World: PARADE

Co-directed with precision by Christina A. Coakley and Susan Marie Rhea, Keegan’s PARADE keeps the staging simple and imaginative, cutting away clutter and using only the barest of props and scenic elements to help the story unfold. Keegan Theatre’s production deserves to be seen and heard – just like the story of Mary Phagan and Leo Frank deserves to live on, more than 100 years after the original incidents.
