Composer excited about Angelas Ashes musical

THE COMPOSER behind Angela’s Ashes: A Musical said he hopes they can “do justice” to the memory of Frank McCourt and his Pulitzer Prize winning memoir, writes Anne Sheridan.

Adam Howell, who composed the music and lyrics for the show, said the cast of 22 are “nervous and excited” ahead of its first Irish showing in the Lime Tree theatre from July 17.

The production, which was staged in Derby last year, has been lauded by the McCourt family, who will be returning to Limerick from the States for this reworked production.

“If we can do it in Limerick, we can do it anywhere.. It’s hard to say what kind of reaction we’ll get; we didn’t know what kind of reaction we’d get in Derby either,” he said in an interview with the Limerick Leader recently.
