The Irish Rep is one of our favorite off Broadway houses; we have seen over 12 plays and readings here in the past three years since we discovered it, ranging from good to outstanding. The theatre lives up to its purpose: "The Irish Repertory Theatre...More

The theater has just reopened following renovations. It's small and intimate, fresh productions, much more affordable than Broadway (think Hamilton) and an all around fun experience. "Shining City" gave us a lot to think about.

The Irish Repertory Theater is currently using the DR2 Theater on 15th near Union Square while its own space is being renovated. The play we saw is "The Belle of Belfast", written by an American with Choctaw roots but with a real sense of Irishness....More

I was in NYC for a week long business trip in October 2014, and decided it was about time to see either a show or a play. After seeing the eye-watering prices of the big musicals, I dug a little deeper into the off Broadway...More

We saw Sea Marks., a play the reviews of which fall short largely because of the nature of the second act. It is a play with romantic tensions and attractions between persons separated by age and place, and yet underlying those aspects is a play...More

We previously saw an excellent production at the Irish Rep Theatre--The Weir. The latest piece, Journey, is so poor that we left at intermission. The cast puts heart and soul into it but are undone by the simplistic music and lyrics, disjointed story, and utter...More

Transport, written by Thomas Keneally (Schindler's List) with music by Larry Kirwan (Black 47) was one of the best I've seen. The music was wonderful (hints of Black 47 in some songs), acting superb. The Irish Rep has delivered, as usual. Play is scheduled to...More

Home to hundreds of art galleries, beautiful
brownstones, and one of New York’s newest and most
popular attractions, Chelsea is one of the city’s
jewels when it comes to neighborhood life. The
contemporary art scene is an integral part of the
neighborhood’s identity, with gallery openings almost
every night of the week and countless exhibits to
explore. As a longtime hub of gay culture in New York
