Angela’s Ashes – The Musical makes its Cork premier in this major musical adaptation of Frank McCourt’s memoir. Tuesday 17 – Saturday 21 September 2019 8pm & 2pm matinee (Saturday) €25 - €42* In a major musical adaptation, Frank McCourt’s memoir Angela’s Ashes comes to the Cork Opera House stage in an emotional telling of a childhood in Limerick and beyond, featuring unforgettable songs and melodies, told with a rare lyricism and a warm inimitable sense of humour. As his parents struggle to provide for him and his brothers in 1940s Ireland, we follow young Frank’s escapades and experiences in a Dickensian landscape peopled by a drunken father, a helpless mother, pompous priests, bullying schoolmasters and money-lenders culminating in his defiant escape to a new life in America. A haunting score adds to the emotional impact and the humour of the story. Angela’s Ashes has that rare gift of bringing an audience to tears one minute, laughing out loud the next – by turns, deeply moving and riotously funny, this heart-warming musical promises to be one of the major theatrical events. Based on the Pulitzer prize-winning book by Frank McCourt, Angela’s Ashes The Musical is produced by Pat Moylan, directed by Thom Sutherland, with Music and Lyrics by Adam Howell and Book by Paul Hurt. Music & Lyrics – Adam Howell, Book by Paul Hurt, based on a memoir by Frank McCourt. Starring Jacinta Whyte and Eoin Cannon. Directed by Thom Southerland ★★★★ “…only the hardest of heartstrings could fail to be tugged” – Sunday Business Post ★★★★ “Winning performances…it radiates confidence” – The Irish Times ★★★★★ “Moylan’s production hit a home run, bullseye and hole in one” – Irish Examiner #AngelasAshes #musical #frankmccourt #Cork #musicaltheatre #mustsee

The Good Room in association with Cork Opera House present, The Blindboy Podcast Live as part of the inaugural @corkpodcastfestival Sunday 13th October 2019, 8PM 8pm €26* (link for tickets in bio) With a number one selling book under his belt, he has spent the past two years becoming Ireland's foremost podcaster, single-handedly changing people's mind set on mental health and the deafening stigma it surrounds. At the same time, he's also being dishing out poignant, fiendishly listenable 'hot takes' on everything from the origins of disco to an Indonesian volcano's impact on the gothic period; from witnessing a public masturbator with one half of Boyzone to the peculiar nature of the colour blue. Outspoken, informed and empathetic, Blindboy engages his audience with equal touches of realism and surrealism. There is a very authentic feeling of "freedom" Mr Boatclub exhumes which allows his listeners and participants to openly speak their mind without judgement and with no topic off limits.

Direct from the West End, @bklproductions multi-award winning production of BLOOD BROTHERS comes to #corkoperahouse House from 6th - 24 August 2019. Written by Willy Russell, the legendary BLOOD BROTHERS tells the captivating and moving tale of twins who, separated at birth, grow up on opposite sides of the tracks, only to meet again with fateful consequences. Few musicals have received quite such acclaim as the multi-award winning BLOOD BROTHERS. Bill Kenwright’s production surpassed 10,000 performances in London’s West End, one of only three musicals ever to achieve that milestone. It has been affectionately christened the ‘Standing Ovation Musical’, as inevitably it “brings the audience cheering to its feet and roaring its approval” (The Daily Mail). The superb score includes Bright New Day, Marilyn Monroe and the emotionally charged hit Tell Me It’s Not True. Don't miss out and book your seats now through the link in our bio! #musical #musicaltheatre #westend #BloodBrothers #Cork #corkarts #theatre #corkoperahouse

'West Cork' Podcast Live The first event of the inaugural @corkpodcastfestival presented by @thegoodroomcork in association with Cork Opera House. Saturday 12th October at 8pm Tickets €26.50* West Cork, which Time Magazine named as one of its top 50 favourite podcasts, guides listeners through the brutal, unsolved murder and the tangled web of its investigation, while introducing an intricate cast of characters, a provocative prime suspect, and a recovering community whose story begs to be heard. Meet the makers and hear exclusive behind the scenes stories with Sam and Jennifer on stage at Cork Opera House. Speaking about the event, Sam Bungey commented: “We're so excited to be part of the first Cork Podcast Festival. It's an honour to be invited back to Cork. After 22 years there has finally been a criminal trial over Sophie's murder, but it was no ordinary trial and it's not at all clear what it will lead to. We sat in the courtroom in Paris recently as Ian Bailey was convicted of the murder, in absentia. We'll be talking about what that trial means, along with other developments, as we gather research for new episodes.” (*excl. booking fee).
