critical reviews

"Raises important, powerful issues, and holds them up to scrutiny."

"That was over twenty years ago. I never got back—never will now. It's like Terry says: I'm just another English Paddy."

Plot Summary:

Set in Baltimore, Reel is a musical, the third of the trilogy. The play centers around Morgan, a phenomenal Irish dancer, who, for all his talent, cannot enjoy it, because he has set himself up as the protector of Ireland's heritage. The show looks at the effects of his single-mindedness on him and those in his circle. If he could go home, would anyone want him?
