Melody Grove in the role of Prudencia,
In this interactive theater piece, set in a “pub,” Melody Grove cordially greets the audience, prompts our help, shares a confidence or two, and then turns in a performance worthy of a Shakespearean heroine, as Prudencia battles inclement weather, doltish colleagues, and…could that be the Devil?
Rob Nagle in the role of Gabriel Conroy,
A gifted mainstay of the wacky, irreverent, improvisational Troubadour Theater Company plays it straight, and beautifully, in this revival of one of our finest chamber musicals. Gabriel serves as narrator, host, conscience, and ultimately victim in the original Joyce novella, and Rob Nagle embraces each of those roles with conviction and emotional truth.
From New York:
Peter Maloney in the role of Tony Reilly,
Peter Maloney is wonderfully nasty as the stonehearted father. It’s all the more sob-inducing when his rough exterior cracks in a deathbed scene, which could easily have become overly sudsy. Maloney has been turning in consistently first-rate work on and Off-Broadway for decades, and it’s thrilling to see him in such a magnificent performance in this sweet Irish love letter.
