Here’s What the Critics Have to Say:

The New York Times

“..a robust romantic musical”

“The enjoyable score by Mr. Brielle… meshes neatly with his libretto and embraces a rhythmic variety of ardent, melodic songs…” 

 

 L.E. McCoullah/New York Irish Arts

“Himself and Nora”- Irish Literary Genius in 5-Part Harmony

The brilliant new musical by Jonathan Brielle Music

See it and be culturally uplifted.

“Himself and Nora” grabs your attention from the first word and holds it till the final curtain.

This will likely be the only play this year which you will hear the word “fellaciable” sung or spoken.

The reserved, bespecaled Joyce and dour, dowdy hated Nora we’ve known … have been transformed into vigorous, flawed, passionate humans by Matt Bogart and Jessica Burrows.

Bogart and Burrows are sensational actors and singers and display a sincere intimacy.  You forget that they are anything but Joyce and Nora in the flesh.

Director Michael Bush earns special accommodation.

You’ll likely start hearing the show’s finale song, “River Liffey” in the coming months… it’s got anthemic sticky power.

Himself and Nora makes you realize there is a little bit of James Joyce in each of us.”

 

Peter Filichia/Gannet Newspapers

“I can’t believe that we just heard another good song! How many can this guy write?”

 

Broadway World

“…is alive with intelligence and colorful tunes.”

 

Time Square Chronicles

“Matt Bogart draws us into Joyce’s life and we feel his every emotion as he gloriously sings the tough role.”

“Jessica Burrows…is a star in the making…”

“Michael Bush’s direction is moving, loving…”

 

Talk Entertainment

“…it is the glorious words and music of Mr. Brielle that make Himself and Nora so moving, exciting and truly an affair to remember.”

 

Curtain Up

“Brielle (book, music, and lyrics) brings out the vulnerable side of this modernist avant-garde writer who wrote Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man, the landmark novel Ulysses…”
