If anyone expected a quiet IAW&A Salon at the Thalia Studio before the July 4th holiday, they were mistaken. We were privileged to have astonishing performers and tremendous variety in the lineup, including renowned actress Terry Donnelly, fresh from her triumph at Irish Rep, and jazz saxophonist Jon Gordon, called “one of the greatest alto players ever.”

Maura Mulligan says “All Heaven breaks loose” in her new play, Brigid, when the saint and the goddess visit the Vatican and confront Pope John Paul II. Maura was thrilled to have Terry Donnelly, fresh from her multiple roles in the Seán O’Casey trilogy at the Irish Rep, portray St. Brigid. Maria Deasy, winner of the Origin Theater’s “Spirit of the Festival” award made a spirited goddess and our own Jack Di Monte made a very convincing Pope. Dolores Nolan provided stage directions, rounding out this powerful ensemble.
