Late at the Gate Selected Dates from 23rd February to 24th March, 2018 Late at the Gate is a new initiative where mini-productions, platforms and post-show discussions run in parallel with productions on stage. These events aim to provide a forum for audiences and artists to respond to productions in the context of what is happening in the world today. The first in the series is a new Gate Studio commission for writer and performer, Emmet Kirwan, who will respond to Osborne’s Look Back in Anger, from the perspective of a young man living in Ireland in 2018. We look forward to a performance that interrogates the role of the artist in contemporary life. Kirwan’s credits include writing and performing the highly-successful play, Dublin Oldschool and the IFTA-winning short film Heartbreak (Warrior Films), originally part of THISISPOPBABY’s RIOT. For this performance, he collaborates with director Oonagh Murphy, who recently directed Tribes at the Gate, to create a meditation on politics, gender and class, asking can art truly affect change or opinions in the face of systemic inequality. ***10 performances only*** Writer and Performer ……………………..Emmet Kirwan Director …………………………………………………..Oonagh Murphy Duration: Approximately 30 minutes Show Times: Thursdays at 10.30pm:  March – 15th.

Elbow returned with their seventh studio album in February 2017. As with the previous three elbow albums it was produced by Craig Potter. ‘Little Fictions’ is emphatically a band album. Having written individually for its chart-topping predecessor, ‘The Take Off and Landing of Everything’, sessions this time were collective affairs, with all four members gathered initially in a house in Scotland before moving to Guy’s attic in Prestwich and finalising recordings in the familiar setting of Blueprint studios, Salford. ‘Little Fictions’ is an upbeat album. All the band talk of the sessions being ‘joyful’, Mark summarises it as ‘the sound of four people who love what they do and each other’, of an album that came into being naturally and, at times even unconsciously. Lead single ‘Magnificent (She Says)’ was embraced for the joyous, thrilling piece of music it is, positive and outward looking. Mark never even considered his audible switch towards electric guitars, most notable on the psychedelic lushness of ‘All Disco’, until the very end of the process. The departure of drummer Richard Jupp prior to commencing the writing and recording process in earnest saw early sessions characterised by new approaches to rhythm, with the band utilising percussive […]

Fresh from teaching Morgan Freeman and Woody Harrelson a whole new bag of tricks for the movie “Now You See Me 2“, Keith Barry returns with a brand new live show: “Hypnomagick”. ‘Keith Barry – Hypnomagick’ will be Keith’s craziest, most magical and hypnotic show to date. Prepare to have your mind blown with original, never seen before feats of mind-reading and magic, coupled with hilarious hypnotic demonstrations that will leave your sides aching with laughter. The show will involve demonstrations of mass hypnosis and mass mind-reading, at times involving the whole audience – no one is safe! During the second half Keith will invite over 100 people on stage where he will hypnotise them to do mental and outlandish feats they would never ordinarily do.  He will openly invite the skeptics on stage to participate and imagine the shock on their faces when he makes the whole audience disappear right in front of their very eyes. The only question is – will you be brave enough to join Keith on stage or will you try to stay safe in the comfort of your seat?

In a career spanning three decades, racking up over 30 million records sales worldwide and a string of Grammy, Brit and Ivor Novello awards along the way, Seal continues to shine as one of the world’s brightest music stars. “Standards” brings the glamour of Old Hollywood straight to the present. It is a natural successor to his series of soul records, made a decade ago which sold over 5 million copies around the world. “Standards” hears Seal’s signature, velvety warm vocals bring to life classics made popular by Frank Sinatra (such as ‘Luck Be A Lady’, ‘I’ve Got You Under My Skin’ and ‘It Was A Very Good Year’), Ella Fitzgerald (‘I’m Beginning to See The Light’) and Nina Simone (‘I Put A Spell on You’). Elsewhere, there are lush orchestral moments captured on ‘Smile’ (Charlie Chaplin) and the Cole Porter gem, ‘Love For Sale’. The sound of Seal’s new album is also shaped by three renowned collaborators: Grammy-nominated British producer Nick Patrick (who has worked with luminaries including Tina Turner and Marvin Gaye and enjoyed huge chart success with his pioneering Elvis orchestral albums), multi Grammy-nominated arranger Chris Walden, and legendary engineer Don Murray.

As Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band reaches its half century, UCD Symphony Orchestra and The Bootleg Beatles team up to perform this iconic album live in its entirety fifty years to the day of its original release at Bord Gáis Energy Theatre in 2018.
