“THE GLORIOUS ONES” AT THE TOWN HALL THEATRE DUNGARVAN

 

THE GLORIOUS ONES POSTER.png2Dungarvan Town Hall Theatre, Co. Waterford July 4th  & 5th 2018 at 8pm nightly.

“Jaunty , saucy and completely entertaining”, – “The Glorious Ones”, based on a novel by the noted author Francine Prose, was hailed by the New York Times as “ a valentine to the actor’s life- joyfully naughty, with buoyant music by Stephen Flaherty and a bawdy book by Lynn Ahrens.”

Both slapstick and serious, the musical tells how a 16th century commedia dell arte theatre troupe came to be and how it captured the public’s adoration with bawdy comedy before changing artistic fashion altered its way of life.
