The Gigli Concert will leave you feeling inspired, content and entertained. If you're wanting to see a funny, witty and inspiring Irish play, this is it.

The irishman (played by Maeliosa Stafford) seeks help for some personal issues that he feels is preventing him from singing like Beniamino Gigli. He's over traditional psychiatrists, and then comes to the beck and call of quack psychiatrist JDW King (otherwise known as Jimmy, played by one of the Co-Producers, Patrick Dickson.)

Funnily enough, they have their bickering going on for our sheer entertainment, yet they get on really well. In other words, The Irishman inspires and felt that King's treatment was worthwhile in the end. The Irishman was inspired to give King a generous financial boost to help him set up his psychiatry practice, rather than living in a small, dull, academic looking like apartment. It turns out that The Irishman was Jimmy's second ever patient. Unconventionalism for our pleasure.

This Irishman turned Jimmy's world upside down, yet his insatiable need for vodka evidently remained. His mistress Mona was his refreshment for sex and companionship. He declared Mona to be the normal one. Her emotions were evident when she heard the news that one of her family members has breast cancer.

I loved this play. Fantastic acting, and really entertaining. There is a 20-minute interlude in between this three-hour play in a beautiful, restorative ambience. The audience were able to laugh at times, and at other times it was thought provoking. Makes you appreciate what good you have in your life. If you have see Freud's Last Session, you will like this play.

Highly recommended. The three actors were a sensation.
