A Note from Jamie O’Reilly
June 5, 2022
The Odyssey continues
I’m seeing-in the Ulysses Centenary Celebration stateside. When it became clear a Dublin trip wasn’t in the cards this summer, Siobhan at Chief’s suggested I pair-up with producer/writer/director JR (Jim)  Sullivan, whose new show BLOOMSDAY CHICAGO, is a dramatical, comical, musical riff on Ulysses. It’s at our favorite Chief O’Neill’s Pub. 4 shows!  Don’t miss it, it’s going to be delightful and I want to see you!

MORE from the producer

Join renowned director/writer J.R. Sullivan for delightful, dramatical, musical, comical riffs on ULYSSES at BLOOMSDAY CHICAGO on the Centenary Anniversary of the novel. Celebrating James Joyce with a play on the book and songs from Jamie O’Reilly accompanied by John Erickson on piano, J.R. and cast will regale you with fun and thoughtful lyrics and prose in the comforting confines of Chief O’Neill’s Pub at 3471 N. Elston Ave – which will double as Joyce’s Dublin for the shows. 

Joyce said “life is too short to read a bad book,” but he’d be glad his work is being celebrated in far-flung cities like that of the Broad Shoulders here in Illinois as joyfully and eloquently as it will be June 15 and 16. Two performances will be presented each night at 6:30 p.m. and 8:30 p.m. 

Join us at Chief O’Neill’s and celebrate the genius of Joyce

“It is like a great net let down from heaven including in the infinite variety in its take on the magnificent and the petty, the holy and the obscene.”

Roots in Ireland campaign

Roots in Ireland is a project tracing the roots of Jamie’s cultural legacy and Irish heritage.
Part I In Old Chicago, explores the roots of my vocal style and her family’s Chicago Salon tradition. We visit the world of her Irish American relations: feisty activists, artists and writers, and the Irish literary revival in the early 20th century, and the period of James Joyce. This program debuted to a standing ovation in fall of 2021. Donate via PayPal here.
