Due to a theatre renovation taking place at its home base, The Irish Rep’s current productions are being presented at the DR2 Theatre (103 East 15th Street in Union Square).  A return to its renovated theater on West 22nd Street in Chelsea is planned for Spring 2016.


The iconic A CHILD’S CHRISTMAS IN WALES features both traditional and contemporary holiday music.  A snowy Christmas Day in Wales is seen through the eyes of a child . . . ghost stories are whispered, cakes are gobbled up, and wild Indians roam the city park . . . while uncles, stuffed with pudding, snort and groan on the couch on a lazy holiday afternoon.


The remainder of the cast joining Mr. Cullum onstage in A CHILD’S CHRISTMAS IN WALES will be announced shortly.
