Dancing at Lughnasa 

Lauren K. Woods Theatre - All Day

Dancing at Lughnasa is by Brian Friel, one of Ireland’s finest playwrights. Set in the summer of 1936, during the Celtic harvest festival Lughnasa, the play is told through the memories of Michael, recalling those days of growing up in the northwest county of Donegal with his mother, her three sisters, and an uncle priest recently returned from his missionary days in Africa.

SONGWRITERS BY THE SEA

Mar 18

SONGWRITERS BY THE SEA 

Lauren K. Woods Theatre - 8 PM

Distinguished NJ Songwriters Joe Rapolla and Joe D’Urso are back this year hosting the celebrated Songwriters by the Sea series at the Lauren K. Woods Theatre. What once started in a small coffee shop as an area for local songwriters has now grown into a series that features some of the top songwriters in the country. This year, the show features James Maddock, a fixture on the Folk and Americana scene and expatriate Irish writer and musician Larry Kirwan. An April 2014 review in Relix Magazine puts it this way: “James Maddock possesses the kind of lived-in craggy voice that would sound authoritative if he were singing the sports pages. Fortunately, he doesn't need to do that because his compositional skills are a match for his delivery." After fronting the Columbia Records band Wood, whose debut Songs From Stamford Hill was featured prominently on TV shows such as “Dawson’s Creek,” Maddock moved from England to New York City in 2003. His 2009 album Sunrise On Avenue C won a New York Music Award for Best Americana Album, while follow-up Wake Up And Dream ranked among the top albums of 2011 in WFUV's (NYC) Listener Poll. He has performed with Bruce Springsteen, Willie Nile, Aaron Comess (Spin Doctors) and David Immergluck (Counting Crows). Larry Kirwan (born in Wexford, Ireland) is an expatriate Irish writer and musician, most noted as the lead singer for the New York-based Irish rock band, Black 47 Kirwan has also written and produced eleven plays and musicals, some of which have been performed in the United States and Europe. The plays deal mainly with Irish history and politics. Monmouth University student musicians will open the show.
