I Keano MCD

We now have three cast members confirmed for the return of the comedy musical I, Keano to the Olympia in Dublin from 28 March to 12 April 2015.

  • The rebellious warrior Keano will be played by Johnny Ward, who has appeared on Fair City, The Centre, and most recently as Paulie in Love/Hate.
  • The beleaguered General Macartacus will again be played by Dessie Gallagher, whose film credits include Dead Man Walking, Reign of Fire and King Arthur.
  • The ferocious Fergie and the wood nymph Dunphia will again both be played by satirist and impressionist Gary Cooke of Apres Match fame.

You can buy tickets from Ticketmaster outlets nationwide and online.

I happen to be a big fan of the theater. I also happen to be far away from Dublin. (I’m not at all happy about that last fact.)

Congratulations on such great, long-standing success with your work on the stage. Perhaps the book and lyrics will be available in the States at some point.

(And perhaps I will someday truly understand Irish football. I happened to spend some time in Ireland and my own cultural preferences kept me seeing baseball diamonds in the beautiful fields.)
