The show, as one might gather, was based on James Joyce’s short story of the same name from The Dubliners. The production starred Christopher Walken, Blair Brown and a host of other theatrical luminaries, and was directed by Richard Nelson, who also wrote the Tony-winning Book. Shaun Davey wrote the lovely, stirring authentic Irish music that made up the score. For the role, I learned to play the Bodhran, a traditional Irish Drum.
