Peoria Cabaret Theatre Production Spotlights The Irish-American Experience

Mar 24, 2017

This week, we're talking with Andrew Driscoll from the Peoria Cabaret Theatre, about "The Irish... And How They Got That Way." Written by Frank McCourt, the show celebrates the history of Irish immigrants to America. Driscoll talks about the show itself, and how it lends itself to a cabaret style presentation in his particular venue. He also talks about how it fits in among the other events presented in the Broadway Lounge, and an upcoming performance which spotlights the music of Peoria-born songwriter Richard A. Whiting.

"The Irish... And How They Got That Way" continues with performances Friday and Saturday night in the Broadway Lounge at the MAXAM Building in downtown Peoria.
