OPERA

COMIC TOUCH

The 67th Wexford Festival Opera returns this October 19 until November 4 with rarely seen operas, double bills and a nod to the great Leonard Bernstein on the centenary of his birth. If the costumes and production design are anything to go by, though, we’re particularly jazzed about the European premiere of William Bolcom’s Dinner at Eight, right, based on a biting, comic play about an ill-fated dinner party in Depression-era Manhattan that was made into a film by George Cukor in 1933 and starred Jean Harlow. wexfordopera.com

THEATRE

One of Ireland’s most singular actors, Mikel Murfi wowed audiences with his metaphoric performances in Enda Walsh’s Ballyturk and The Walworth Farce. He’s back in New York’s Irish Arts Center with two companion pieces of his own: The Man in the Woman’s Shoes and I Hear You and Rejoice. Running until October 21, these critically acclaimed shows capture the multiple characters of a bustling Irish hinterland. irishartscenter.org
