Ireland's most famous nightclub is getting its very own musical. Written by Ross O'Carroll Kelly creator Paul Howard, Copper Face Jacks: The Musical will open in the Olympia Theatre on July 5th.
The production is a love story set on the eve of a Dublin Kerry All Ireland Final, when a sweet Kerry girl, who’s moved to the big smoke for her dream job in The VHI, ends up falling head over her flat-shoes with a true blue Dublin team member.
Speaking about the show Paul said, “Once you hear the name Copper Face Jacks: The Musical it’s impossible not to want to make it happen. We’ve been talking about it for a few years now so it’s brilliant to think in just a few months it will be up and running. I hope we can do this very special venue justice...whilst I also secretly dream of a day when this work is on the Leaving Certificate”.
Tickets from €28 go on sale this Friday, March 2nd via Ticketmaster.ie or the Olympia Theatre box office.
