Peter Norton Symphony Space
2537 Broadway at 95th Street

The McNulty family—Ma, her daughter Eileen and her son Peter—were the most extraordinarily successful and acclaimed Irish entertainers in America between 1930 and 1960. Now, close to the 50th anniversary of their last performance in their beloved New York City, folklorist and musician Mick Moloney returns to Symphony Space to lead a tribute to this peerless trio – the last of the great vaudevillians in America.  Their combination of exuberant traditional Irish and Irish American song with tap, clog and Irish step dance set them apart from all entertainers of their era. The Famous McNultys filled theBrooklyn Academy of Music with their Irish Showboat Revue twice a year for close to twenty years. The concert will be a celebration of their magnificent, joyful artistry and will feature a program of music, song and dance against a stunning backdrop of projected visual images from the life and times of this remarkable family.

Admission:Orchestra: $40 general / $30 IAC members Tier 2: $30 general / $27 IAC members / $20 students SymphonySpace.org or 212-864-5400
