MD Theatre Guide: AN IRISH CAROL

Where Dickens’ Carol is straightforward and direct in its timeline, An Irish Carol’s timeline is non-linear in style and it works well.  The writer is Keegan company member and Dublin native Matthew J. Keenan. His version has been a tradition for 9 years running and should remain one for a very long time. Director Mark

Broadway World: AN IRISH CAROL

Keegan Theatre’s production of An Irish Carol by Matthew J. Keenan holds all the charm and heart of the original Dickens tale, except this time with a tad more profanity, and booze. A staple tradition of the DC theatre scene, An Irish Carol is in its 9th annual production for Keegan and hasn’t lost any

DC Theatre Scene: AN IRISH CAROL

No holiday season would be complete without a viewing of Charles Dickens’ 176-year-old classic, A Christmas Carol. And while my heart will forever hold true to the George C.

DC Metro Theater Arts: AN IRISH CAROL 2018

With a heart as cold as the blustery winds blowing people in and out the door, An Irish Carol by Matthew J. Keenan finds David, a pub’s miserly owner, confronted by guests of his past and glimpses of his future on a chilly Christmas Eve. This modern-day A Christmas Carol adaption, directed by Mark A. Rhea, looks at one

DC Theatre Scene: AN IRISH CAROL 2018

[In Keegan’s An Irish Carol,] the Irish pub becomes purgatory and confessional, a place both of escape and a place one can call home. It’s a “carol” true enough, but one for 21st century adults. An Irish Carol was written by company member Matthew J. Keenan (who also designed a most authentic pub as set) and was

BroadwayWorld: AN IRISH CAROL 2018

Humbug’s my usual reaction when there’s yet another variation of “A Christmas Carol” on local stages this time of year. Can’t someone come up with an original idea for a Christmas play? No such complaints at The Keegan Theatre, where their response has been a sublime one, returning for its eighth season — a work

It’s not exactly clear what fluids sustained the original Ebenezer Scrooge on his late-night tour, but Dublin native Matthew J.

Keenan, is not a direct retelling of A Christmas Carol (and that’s a good thing, as the stage has no shortage of
