Irish Repertory Theatre has announced casting for Frank McCourt's The Irish...and How They Got That Way, to run July 14 - September 4, with an opening on July 22. Charlotte Moore will direct the production, which will feature musical direction by Kevin B. Winebold and choreography by Barry McNabb.

The piece is an irreverent but affectionate history of the Irish in America that uses songs of Ireland, such as "Danny Boy," "The Rose of Tralee, and "Harrigan," along with the works of George M. Cohan including "Give My Regards to Broadway," "You're A Grand Ole Flag," and "I'm A Yankee Doodle Dandy" and music from modern-day Irish rockers such as U2.

The company will feature Ciaran Sheehan and Terry Donnelly, who will recreate their roles from the original production of the show, along with Kerry Conte, Patrick Shields, Gary Troy, and Kevin B. Winebold.

The creative team will include Shawn Lewis (scenic design), David Toser (costume design), Michael Gottlieb (lighting design), and Jan Hartley (projection design).
