Keegan Theatre’s Church Street home may be still under construction but the show must go on. The show is Keegan’s annual seasonal offering An Irish Carol. Thanks to a generous partnership, Keegan can present the show at Theater J with the proceeds going to their ongoing capital campaign.
The great Northern Irish golf pro Rory McIlroy, who drove a golf ball forty yards at the age of two and thereafter slept with a golf club, fingers interlaced so that he could memorize the proper grip, had his marriage proposal to Danish tennis pro Carolyn Wozniacki interrupted when a loud drunk wandered on to […]
So what do you scream out in the throes of ecstasy? Should a person get a freedom-to-express pass even when the turn-on becomes racially or otherwise offensive? Is nasty necessarily exciting? Keegan’s new play asks us to take a look at our most secret desires, and, as it spills out intimate details about bedroom mores, […]
“This is our crowning achievement,” Mark A. Rhea told me the day after I had seen Hair at Keegan Theatre. I saw the show on a Wednesday night, at one of the performances that had been added to a run extended through Apr. 27th. The house was full and very enthusiastic.

With midterm elections still months away and the 2016 presidential tilt lurking in the distance, it’s a perfect time to step back and consider the bloodsport that is the American political campaign. In its bracing production of Gore Vidal’s The Best Man, Keegan Theatre has staged an all-too-real political clash between between two polar opposites […]
The fine actor Matthew J. Keenan recontextualizes Dickens’ Christmas Carol in this play, and his company, Keegan Theatre, is producing it for the third consecutive year. Keenan, a native of Ireland who has no other playwriting credits, has written an honest piece of work, which takes no shortcuts in its effort to achieve an authentic […]
Theatre is a form of therapy and horror is a form of release – taking us to the outer unexplored edges of our minds. Terror and theatre can unleash internal beasts we’d like to ignore. But ignore them and suffer the consequences.
Comedy is a lot like music, constantly evolving according to tastes, culture, and age. Ask your grandmother who the best comedian around is; it’s doubtful she’ll respond with “Aziz Ansari” or “Louis C.
