Under the leadership of Charlotte Moore and Ciaran O’Reilly, the Irish Rep specializes in presenting revivals and adaptations of works that are Irish in terms of authorship and/or characters and subject matter. The Irish Rep’s most notable productions in its intimate theater on West 22nd Street have included Eugene O’Neill’s The Emperor Jones, George Bernard Shaw’s Candida, Dylan Thomas’s A Child’s Christmas in Wales, the musical Ernest in Love (adapted from Oscar Wilde’s The Importance of Being Earnest), and a critically acclaimed, small-scale production of Finian’s Rainbow that pre-dated the recent Broadway revival by several years.
