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

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!”

The Examiner: Steel Magnolias

“Steel Magnolias” by Robert Harling exists in that narrow corridor between sentiment and sentimentality. When not carefully directed and acted, it offers opportunities for maudlin comments on the unfairness of life. But in a solid production, like the Keegan Theatre’s current offering, honest feeling prevails over bathos and banality. Although there is a central character
