Leenya stars as Byrne in this reading of a brand new musical in the New York Music Theater Festival.
Written and directed by Eileen Connolly and based on real life events, this epic story of a traveling circus troupe on the windswept coast of Ireland is told with traditional Irish music, popular big band radio classics, and original indie-rock/folk songs. The heart of the show is a love story cut short by war, mirrored in a rehearsal of the Selkie myth: a magical seal who transforms for the love of a girl and pays with his life.
