    Theater: Irish Repertory Theatre / 132 West 22nd Street, New York, NY, 10011

    Synopsis: 

    Against a background ripe with the intrigue of the secret Fenian Uprising in Ireland in 1866, Dion Boucicault, the undisputed master of melodrama, unravels his comic masterpiece, The Shaughraun, which springs to life once again on The Irish Repertory Theatre's stage. Desperate forbidden passions! Beautiful damsels in distress! Swashbuckling swordplay! Mustachioed villains! Lots of kissing, and a charismatic hero whose fiddle is the soul of every fair and the life of every funeral...also a dog. Caution: Gaelic spoken here!

    Rachel Saltz

    May 10, 2011: The name alone conjures greasepaint and gaslights and the Ghosts of Theater Past. Dion Boucicault, the 19th-century Irish playwright and actor, was popular in Britain and America with melodramas like “The Colleen Bawn,” one of the most successful plays of the time; “The Octoroon”; and “The Shaughraun,” now at the Irish Repertory Theater in a lively, loving production.
