Nothing Says St. Patrick’s Day Like 12 Killer Versions of Ahrens & Flaherty’s “The Streets of Dublin”
Sunday, March 17 is St. Patrick's Day, and we're celebrating a bit early with a dozen amazing versions of our favorite Irish musical theatre tune “The Streets of Dublin” from Ahrens & Flaherty’s cult off-Broadway musical A Man of No Importance. Get ready for a lot of gorgeous, passionate singing.
The Tony-nominated star originated the role for the premiere off-Broadway run LCT, and it feels like home in his voice.
Damn, Jason Danieley’s voice just doesn’t quit. His tenor legit takes flight and soars.
How could we not include the Irish star of Broadway’s The Ferryman?! All about the authenticity here, folks.
Bobby Conte Thornton
I love the way Bobby Conte Thornton interprets a song. It’s so fully committed and the vocals are fire.
I truly live. There’s such momentum to this version.
The Emmy winner loses himself in it, and it’s a treat to watch.
What can’t Aaron Tveit sing and sound glorious?! It’s almost unfair. On top of it all, he makes it look so effortless.
Rachel Bay Jones
Leave it to this Tony winner to make it feel like a beautiful folk song.
The Mean Girls leading man was just a teen when he won the 2010 Jimmy Award for his performance of the song.
There’s a full performance happening here, and it’s damn good. He sells the song from start to stop.
Eric William Morris
I love that the King Kong stars accompanies himself on it. (Also, the video starts at 2:20.)
Jordan Lee Davies
The final video is all about those vocals and the realness (maybe 'cause it's from the other side of the pond). But it feels good to end on this top-shelf version from the West End and UK Voice star.
