A BEST BET Pick! “Captivating…The genius of 'The Belle of Belfast' is the way things that are compelling are juxtaposed with things that are flip. One moment you can be laughing because of a wisecrack, but the next, your heart is tugged by a tender look between Lydic and Allan-Headley. Under Claudia Weill’s tight direction on a modest, well-used stage, the whole cast is impressive. A must-see.” –Theater is Easy
