March Must-Sees At Pavilion

28 February 2017
March Must-Sees At Pavilion
Whether you want to laugh yourself silly, soak up timeless music, lose yourself in dance or experience thought-provoking theatre, it’s all happening at Pavilion this month. Let’s take a closer look all the fantastic events that are coming up in March.
We've got two plays by Ireland's leading playwrights on offer this month.
First, This Lime Tree Bower by Conor McPherson (Tue 7 & Wed 8 Mar). The Weir took Dún Laoghaire by storm in 2016 with a two-week run at Pavilion, and we're delighted to have McPherson's work back on our stage. Featuring a stellar cast of Peter Daly (Swing, Guaranteed!), Stephen Jones (Love/Hate) and David Fennelly (Fishes), McPherson’s words are in very capable hands. 
Johnny I Hardly Knew Ye by Jim Nolan (DreamlandThe Black Pool) arrives a few weeks later (Thu 30 & Fri 31 Mar)  The small town of Inishshannon is making preparations to celebrate its tenuous connection to the events of 1916, while the editor of the Inishshannon Chronical (Garrett Keogh – The Weir) has to grapple with the meddling influence of a media giant which has just bought out the newspaper. Johnny I Hardly Knew Ye will delight audiences with its authentic performances and sharp, perceptive commentary on Irish life.
Looking to see more music in one of Dublin’s most intimate venues? We’ve got some fantastic musicians coming to Pavilion in March.
First off, Andy Irvine and Dónal Lunny will be playing to a SOLD-OUT audience (Fri 3 Mar). The Gateway Singers, all the way from Donegal, are singing in aid of Irish Guide Dogs for the Blind (Sat 4 Mar) and Stayin’ Alive, the quintessential Bee Gees tribute act, join us on Fri 10 Mar.
Declan O’Rourke is renowned for his storytelling ability, soulful voice and Dublin charm. On Thu 16 Mar he returns to Pavilion with an intimate solo show. And why not spend your St. Patrick’s Day in the company of one of Washington’s finest exports; singer-songwriter Damien Jurado. And finally, join Emmanuelle Bertrand (cello) and Pascal Amoyel (piano) for an unforgettable of evening of Liszt, Brahms and more (Tue 28 Mar)
We’ve a few treats in store this month for dance lovers...
Generaciones brings together two Sevillian families for one incredible night of gypsy flamenco (Tue 21 Mar). With authentic costume, traditional Spanish song and world-class flamenco dancers, Generaciones will be bringing all the passion of Seville to Dún Laoghaire. 
Lïnger is unlike anything you’ve ever seen before. Featuring ex-Riverdance principal Breandán de Gallaí and Nick O’Connell, the show goes beyond dance to include music, photography, film and movement (Wed 29 Mar). The performers explore themes of ageing, identity and sexual identity during this “duet for two male dancers”. With traditional Irish music jostling for space alongside tango, jazz and classical, Lïnger’s soundtrack is as unconventional as its subject matter. 
We know laughter is the best medicine, so we’ve lined up some great comedy shows for March.
Following her sell-out Pavilion performance last September, Fascinating Aïda's Dillie Keane is back for a fabulous, raucous, utterly hilarious cabaret (Thu 2 Mar). YouTube sensations Foil Arms & Hog have become the undisputed kings of sketch in Ireland, and now they’re taking their show DoomDah to Pavilion for two SOLD-OUT performances (Sun 5 & Thu 9 Mar). Half comedy, half music, all glamour – The Nualas (Sat 11 Mar) are back! In All Spanxed Up the trio will be tackling issues like Trump, weight-gain and nylon tights.
