Even The Fonz turned out to celebrate the Broadway opening of the hit Irish play Stones in His Pockets. And it’s no wonder, this show is a hit wherever it goes. After enjoying a run as the toast of the town in London, this black comedy by Marie Jones has won glowing reviews in New York, described in The New York Times as “one of those plucky little dark horses so cherished in the theatre.”

The play chronicles the impact of an American film being shot in a rural village in Kerry with two actors, Conleth Hill and Séan Campion, seamlessly portraying what seems a cast of thousands.

Also on hand at the opening night party were Gabriel Byrne, the ubiquitous Malachy McCourt, and Riverdance producers Moya Doherty and John McColgan. ♦
