The Irish Repertory Theatre stages the works of Irish and Irish-American classic and contemporary playwrights, encourages the development of new works focused on the Irish and Irish-American experience, and produces the works of other cultures interpreted through the lens of an Irish sensibility. Irish Rep has celebrated the very best in Irish theatre Off-Broadway for twenty-six years, from the masters such as Brien Friel, Eugene O'Neill, George Bernard Shaw, Dylan Thomas, and Conor McPherson to the new generation of Irish and Irish-American writers who are transforming the stage.
Located in a beautiful turn of the century mansion on Manhattan's Upper East Side, The American Irish Historical Society is a center of Irish culture and knowledge in continuous operation since 1897.
