Following record-breaking tours of Ireland and Europe we are thrilled to welcome Rough Magic Theatre Company and their hugely entertaining musical comedy, IMPROBABLE FREQUENCY for the New York holiday season. Winner of three Irish Times Awards including Best Production and Best Director, IMPROBABLY FREQUENCY, is a joyous, surreal satire that lifts the lid on Ireland's beloved neutrality and cuts to the heart of the tempestuous affair with its nearest neighbor—England!

Dublin, 1941: while war rages across Europe, Dublin revels in its prized neutrality as its theatres and bars remain open for business. A hotbed of intellectual and cultural high-living, the city is home to an excitable rabble of exiled intellectuals, British spies and Nazi sympathizers.
Arthur Riordan's devilishly witty script is transported by original music from Bell Helicopter and the ebullient Lynne Parker directs an all-star Irish cast with an on-stage band of six. Awarded five stars by The Times of London, the London Daily Telegraph called it "exceptional, a crazed, delightful musical."
