A Christmas party on a snowy Dublin night provides the setting for a poignant journey into love and laughter, melancholy and music. Richard Nelson and Shaun Davey's Tony Award-winning adaptation of Joyce's brilliant short story is rich in nuance, passion, and relevation. Fresh from a triumphant run on Broadway, James Joyce's The Dead transforms one of the world's greatest stories into a mesmerizing musical experience.
"I'm trhilled to have the opportunity to mount a production of James Joyce's The Dead in Boston, a place with deep ties to Irish people. Unlike most musicals, which reach out from the stage to draw the audience in, James Joyce's The Dead welcomes you into a private, intimate gathering, much like being at a real party. It's a human, joyful experience, a unique approach to storytelling, and a performance you won't soon forget."- Richard Nelson
