Here’s Why The Cripple of Inishmaan’s Irish Aunties Have Won Twitter

It’s the final week to see the top-rate, Tony-nominated comedy The Cripple of Inishmaan at Broadway’s Cort Theatre, and that makes us pretty sad.
What makes us sadder is that the genius Twitter account @InishAunties is also coming to an end. The handle refers to the play’s characters Eileen & Kate Osbourne (played brilliantly by Gillian Hanna and Ingrid Craigie), two Irish sisters who own a shop and care for their crippled nephew Billy (headliner Daniel Radcliffe).
Below BroadwayBox looks back on 12 stellar posts of backstage shenanigans you’d only see if you’ve been following the Aunties on Twitter. [And kudos to the photographer(s)]

Don't miss your chance to see this colorful cast of characters live in The Cripple of Inishmaan at the Cort Theatre, through July 20 only!
