John Ford's Oscar winning, The Quiet Man, is one of the best loved and most popular films of all time. Its musical adaptation, Donnybrook!, begins with the haunting love theme, Richard Farrelly's "The Isle of Innisfree" and marches jauntily through the misty hills of the west of Ireland with a cast of characters headed by the indomitable Mary Kate Danaher, and her counterpart, American prizefighter Sean Enright who, against his strong wishes, has not yet fought his last battle.
Woven so beautifully in the landscape of this classic Irish tale, are the raucous traditional Irish classics entertwined with Johnny Burke's startling original, beautiful melodies sung by a cast of award-winning Broadway artists. The Quiet Man in all its noisy glory, is alive and well on the stage of The Irish Repertory Theatre, celebrating its 25th Anniversary Season.
