Stage Reading of James Connolly: The Musical

Inspired by Hamilton, the American Labor Studies Center and Irish American Heritage Museum present a reading and songs of an original musical by Denis Foley and A. Cara sung by John Rodier. Scores by Sean Obach and Will Welling and a tune by Connolly himself.

Laugh, cry, but hold on to your seat too for a memorable evening with the self-described “Irish American” rebel agitator, who led the Dublin Uprising at the GPO in 1916. "Big" Jim Larkin and The Big Fella Michael Collins make guest appearances. Music ranges from rap to traditional session tunes. Join us at the Michael Flanagan Irish Music Heritage Theater in the museum!
