Irish Repertory Theatre

How The Irish Saved Civilization

I went to New York City On June 6, 1999 for my trip to see The Iceman Cometh. I watched the Tony Awards from my hotel room that night. I later discovered that earlier in the day, Kevin was a special guest for a benefit program for the Irish Repertory Theatre. Months later I won a PLAYBILL® for the benefit gala from Joan, the woman selling things on eBay for the Old Vic Restoration Fund. This is one of my favorite programs because the cover is in color. And it had a picture of Kevin in it. Angela Lansbury was the host of the show.

“The critics have missed the important thing  about me and my work. The fact that I am Irish.”                                       – Eugene O’Neill 1945 (from a letter to his son)
