by Enda Walsh, Glen Hansard and Marketa Irglova (Mirvish). An Irish musician and a Czech immigrant are drawn together by their shared love of music. Previews Feb 10-21, opens Feb 22 and runs to June 28, Tue-Sat 8 pm, Sat-Sun and Wed 2 pm. $29-$130.
Based on the hit indie movie, this drama with music about the collaboration between a down-on-his-luck Dublin busker (Ian Lake) and a Czech immigrant (Trish Lindstrom) needs chemistry between the leads and a lot of heart and honesty. This all-Canadian production has all that and a lot more. A first-rate ensemble and sensitive, intimate direction by John Tiffany adds to the soulful, deeply felt show.
