  • The bright lights of Dublin's theater district

    2010-09-08

    Fans of the stage often choose New York's Broadway or London's West End for their vacations, and these theater districts will surely not disappoint. But for those who want slightly alternative fare, the stages in Dublin are worth a look.

    According to the New York Times, Dublin's theaters offer an interesting change of pace from the big spectacles of the better-financed theaters in larger metropolises. In fact, many noted actors from Broadway and the West End choose to take some time off in Dublin and do some smaller-scale productions.

    Some big name actresses to make the jump to Dublin in recent years include Frances McDormand and Stockard Channing, and travelers can usually find revivals of classic playwrights like David Mamet, Harold Pinter, Samuel Beckett and Tom Stoppard. Dublin is a city with a great literary history as well, with Beckett, Oscar Wilde and George Bernard Shaw all calling the city home at one point or another.

    But the biggest draw of Dublin is its affordability. With ticket prices low and quality comparable to or even surpassing bigger cities, booking a stay in Dublin can be quite lucrative for fans of the theater. Travelers should keep an eye out for the five major theaters - the Gate, the Abbey, the Gaiety, the Olympia and the Grand Canal. All are within walking distance of each other, and those who prefer even more underground fare will likely be able to find smaller venues in the area or even impromptu shows performed in pubs.
