Our interactive dinner theatre show is based on James Joyce’s Finnegan’s Wake. The show first opened its doors in South Boston in 1999 and immediately became a hit! Since then, the incredibly successful show has been putting on performances for over 17 years in the Greater Boston and New Jersey area. This year the famous comedy has returned virtually for everyone to enjoy and will guarantee an evening of laughs. As research shows, laughter is one of the best ways to strengthen relationships and increase team building!
What is Finnegan’s Wake?
Finnegan’s Wake is an Irish comedy show where the audience becomes part of the act. Professional Irish actors and comedians host an evening of Irish wit and merriment to console a recent widow. Finnegan’s Wake online takes dinner theatre to another level as spectators are encouraged to sing along, dance, and even prepare their own eulogies!
What Makes it Different this Year?
Due to the unique circumstances, Finnegan’s Wake will take place online as opposed to the usual in-person dinner theatre experience. It’s a 90-minute interactive event via the Zoom platform and will be hosted by 5 professional actor-comedians. To liven up the spirits and get everyone into the dancing mood, a professional Irish band will be playing classic Irish jigs throughout the evening. Grab your best Irish funeral attire and get ready to party the night away at Ireland’s rowdiest funeral!
