Actors use lime light for gaining theatrical attention, illuminating their performance and softening the blow of critical slammers. Knock back a shot of theatrics with today's Groupon: €6 for a ticket to see the cabaret theatre production of 'When Jolie Met Christie' at Axis Ballymun.
An artistically-assembled collection of dance, arts and music spaces, the 220-seater theatre in Axis Ballymun is just the tip of this centre's vastly creative iceberg lettuce. From the heart of Ballymun, Axis focuses heavily on community development, with many resources open to the public for spectating and taking part. With several educational art programmes and a whole host of theatrical productions currently kicking off, visitors can find fun treading boards and applying sticky back plastic.
Having had a tremendous sell-out run last March, director Ray Yeates' theatrical imagining of the life of legendary Irish singer-songwriter, Christie Hennessy, is hitting the boards once again from 12-17 September. Theatregoers can flock to the doors for an 8pm start, with the promise of song, dance and raucous entertainment. Documenting Hennessy's career through the lens of his great inspiration, entertainer Al Jolson, both men give their different views on music, family and their two very different legacies. Some of Hennessy's best-loved hits are revived by a live band and star of the show, broadcaster and entertainer Aonghus McAnally.
WHEN JOLIE MET CHRISTIE is a great night’s entertainment – it is poignant yet funny and has the ingredients to appeal to a broad theatre going audience, as well as to people who love Christie Hennessy’s music.
– Irish Magic News, Aug 2011
Ultimately, it’s the music that does the talking. One suspects that’s how Hennessy would have liked it.
