NYMF, NEW YORK MUSICAL THEATRE FESTIVAL
Congratulations to Isaac Robert Hurwitz, Executive Director & Producer for bringing 30 new musicals for NY to see at only $25.
Last night I saw "HIMSELF and NORA", written by Jonathan Brielle. It is the story of James Joyce and his wife Nora.
He authored ULYSSES, FINIGAN'S WAKE, PORTRAIT OF THE ARTIST AS A YOUNG MAN, DUBLINERS.It stars
Matt Bogart, and Jessica Burrows who give brilliant performances
in their roles. Lovely songs about their relationship - "Stand Fast", "Always in Love", AND Irish dancing in "Pound & Weaver", and "River Liffey". Joyce had help from Ezra Pound, and finally got
Ulysses published in the United States.
Run to this festival every year !!! http://www.nymf.org/
