Leaving Kilkenny

Tonight is our final performance in beautiful Kilkenny and we are once again having to say ‘good bye’ to four lovely and talented young actresses whom we’ve become quite fond of: Iseult, Annette, Connie and Alex. We arrived a week ago to a town decked out in black and amber checkered banners and flags in

An Entry from Reverend Hale

So I was supposed to write a blog entry a several days ago covering opening night. But I missed that (see Susan’s previous blog entry), so I’ll cover our departure from Galway instead! It’s pretty early in the morning (for us), and we’re all on a bus heading to Kilkenny. Brad’s playing folk on his

And a Word from the Director …

What a journey it has been.   THE CRUCIBLE has been playing to delighted audiences here in Galway since Monday and I return to the States in two days.  It feels that time has flown by — and yet, also, as though we’ve been here in Ireland for months.  In many ways, Ireland feels like a

Judge Hathorne Speaks…

We’re nearing the end of the Galway leg of our tour and I’ll surely be sad to leave this town.  The town is filled with fine musicians which you find in the pubs of course, but just as often on the streets playing for a few coin – sometimes in the pouring rain at ten

A Letter to Mom

September 12th, 2011 Galway, Ireland Dear Mom, My Director, Susan, asked if she could publish this letter on the Keegan website blog, so I will save my usual profanity-laced tirades for the next letter. The Ireland Tour is going great, if great is measured by the quantity of Guinness I’ve consumed.  So far, I’ve enjoyed

First Week in Ireland

The Keegan Crucible cast has completed its first week in Ireland! The time has flown by, and I can hardly believe we open in less than a day. We left Dulles at 6pm on September 3rd for a 20 hour trip which took us to Atlanta, then to Dublin, and finally to Galway. There, after

Young Irish Actors

Our flight landed in Dublin Sunday morning September 4, but no one felt like we had really arrived in Ireland until Brad Smith walked into our rehearsal space on Wednesday afternoon, to a thunderous ovation from his fellow cast members.  The official explanation for Delta’s refusal to allow Brad to board our flight in Atlanta

Galway Advertiser: The Crucible

Keegan Theatre and Town Hall combine for The Crucible
By Charlie Mcbride

ARTHUR MILLER’S classic parable of mass hysteria, The Crucible, will be presented by the Keegan Theatre Company from Washington DC at the Town Hall Theatre this month.

“Once Michael Diskin and I sat down and discussed the idea of this project last year, we were able to look at the numbers and we found ways that balanced it out, so we both felt it was worth the effort to bring this masterpiece to Ireland. We both had a passion to see this through, and now that it is a reality, I couldn’t be more excited. It is a dream come true!”
