The Irish Repertory Theatre or, as we generally know it, The Irish Rep, is not standing by the sidelines during this pandemic crisis. Nope, they are not. They have instead enlisted the help of their incredible company to take their show on the road–the virtual road, that is!

From the Irish Rep website:

Beginning on St. Patrick’s Day and continuing throughout the COVID-19 hiatus, Irish Rep will release a series of homemade videos on our social media channels from our incredible actors performing their favorite songs, poems and monologues from Irish & Irish American playwrights, poets, and musicians.

Follow the hashtags #TheShowMustGoOnline and #IrishRepOnline for The Show Must Go Online updates and new videos. All videos will also live right here on our website!

We will be announcing additional digital content in the coming weeks, as a way to continue to connect the Irish Rep community and theater audiences with leading Irish and Irish American playwrights, scholars, performers, poets, politicians, theater-makers, and more. All content can be found by using the hashtag #IrishRepOnline.

Follow our social media accounts for new videos daily through COVID-19 Hiatus!
