I thought about seeing The New Electric Ballroom at St. Ann's Warehouse last year, but when I realized the author's name was Enda (male) rather than Edna (female) Walsh, decided I could miss it. Big mistake.
Having just seen Walsh's brilliant and magical Penelope, I won't make such a mistake again.
I'd like to see, or at least read, everything this extraordinary playwright has written, and am regretting I didn't spring for a copy of Penelope, which was on sale at the theater.
One of these days, I hope to see Walsh's work on his home turf--the Druid theater in Galway.
In the meantime, I'm grateful to St. Ann's for bringing Walsh's work to New York.
Penelope runs at St. Ann's Warehouse till November 14.
