The Irish Curse – Theater Review


A newcomer shakes up a small group of Irish-American men who meet every Wednesday night, in the basement hall of a Catholic church, at a self-help group for men with small penises.


The Irish Curse is not what you think it is. It’s not even what I thought it was. Whatever you think its about, its not the genetic abnormality you’re assuming. It’s about what all of us feel insecure about, so all of us suffer from the Irish Curse. It’s got five really talented actors. It’s in the Soho Playhouse on VanDam Street. It’s a little tiny thing, so you’re very close to the actors. And it’s really about all of us, even though the cast is all men. Now I can’t praise this too highly. The acting is great, the writing is terrific. Admittedly, I’m a little bit prejudice because I did a talk back with the audience and the actors. But even before I did that I thought it was a terrific experience. So go see the Irish Curse. It was part of the Fringe Festival, so it was actually begun, believe it or not, five years ago, and is certainly every bit as relevant, if not more so today. So five stars for those little dickens. I guarantee you’ll feel blessed if you go see it.
