July 28 2019 | Big Shot - Songs From The Original Irish Musical


Big Shot The Musical will play five nights Off-Broadway and one night at landmark New York venue Feinstein’s/54 Below next month.  Big Shot is an original award winning Irish Musical written and composed by Lauryn Gaffney. In recent months Lauryn and team have been presented with an opportunity to bring Big Shot to New York, where it will be seen and heard by people who can help bring her closer to her ambition of being the first female Irish composer-lyricist to have their work performed on Broadway.

The performers involved in past productions of Big Shot include bona fide West End performers and highly sought-after stars of the Irish musical theatre scene.  The show has a full Irish band, cast and production team.

Big Shot tells the story of one Jeremy Crocker, a savvy defense lawyer thriving in New York City’s bustling legal profession.  Despite his ambitions, Crocker falls in love with Carrie, a struggling Irish artist who works in Crocker’s go-to café in downtown Manhattan. Although the two become ever more infatuated by each other, this threatens to derail Crocker’s career, with regard to the dubious new defense case he has taken on.  Does Crocker follow his heart or stick with his legal client obligations? The theme of the story is love, justice and living in the moment.

With a blend of energetic and poignant songs and a suitable amount of drama one would expect of a Broadway-style musical, Big Shot is an exposition of original Irish composition and writing that simply cannot be missed.

The Asgard Theatre is delighted to welcome Big Shot Company, the music of Lauryn Gaffney; and featurning Amy Penston, Sorcha Fenlon, Donal Brennan, Seán McMahon and Jade Young, all bringing a piece of Big Shot to Arklow for one night only.
