Wooly Mammoth presents The Gigli Concert, by Tom Murphy, directed by Tom Prewitt featuring original cast members Mitchell Hébert, Kimberly Schraf and Artistic Director Howard Shalwitz.
One of Woolly's most acclaimed hits returns! A disheveled Englishman in Dublin, practicing the questionable healing art of Dynamatology, is caught between the demands of two unattainable women, an insatiable taste for vodka and the sheer struggle of getting through the day. Suddenly, a knock on the door brings him a client - a wild-eyed Irish millionaire who longs to sing like the great Italian tenor Gigli. One of the most penetrating Irish plays of our time, The Gigli Concert erupts with glorious language, unexpected humor and immense depths of emotion. (This production replaces Horse Opera which will be presented in the 2006-07 season)
