Flanagan's Wake

When: Fridays, 8 p.m. Continues through April 28 2017

No one knows grief and mourning like a Catholic, let alone an Irish Catholic. In its fifth year running in Cleveland, Flanagan's Wake transports the audience to a wake in Ireland where villagers tell tales and sing songs for their dearly departed Flanagan. Finding the humor in life and death, the wake acts as a dark backdrop to an otherwise hilarious show in which alcohol fuels the humorous reminiscing. A sort of tragic Tony 'n' Tina's Wedding, the interactive and improvised show engages the entire audience as the guests are treated as the friends and family of the deceased. The play begins at 8 tonight and will be performed again tomorrow night at 8 at Kennedy's Theatre. Tickets are $26. (Patrick Stoops)
