Gabriel Byrne Will Return to Broadway This Fall in Walking with Ghosts

Internationally renowned actor and writer Gabriel Byrne is returning to Broadway! This fall, Byrne will star in his acclaimed solo show, Walking with Ghosts, adapted from his best-selling memoir of the same name, at Broadway’s Music Box Theatre.

Directed by Lonny Price, the limited engagement of Walking with Ghosts will begin performances on October 18, with an official opening night of Thursday, October 27. Tickets are now on sale.

Byrne commented, “What an honour to be on Broadway again, especially in a glorious venue like the Music Box. It was a real joy to hear laughter in a theatre during the premiere run of Walking with Ghosts in Dublin. I’ve chosen to be honest and unflinching in the recounting of a life from working class Dublin to Hollywood. Although rooted in the local, I hope the play has a universal resonance.”

Premiering earlier this year at Dublin’s Gaiety Theatre in an acclaimed, sold-out run, Walking with Ghosts went on to a smashing success at the Edinburgh International Festival, and will next have a limited run in London’s West End this September before landing on Broadway. Heralded as an “enthralling evening” and “one of Gabriel Byrne’s greatest achievements” in The Telegraph, its author and star is considered a “master of his craft” (Sunday Times). Walking with Ghosts was commissioned and first produced by Landmark Productions.

By turns a sensory recollection of a childhood spent in a now almost vanished Ireland, a subversive commentary on stardomand – ultimately – a lyrical homage to the people and landscapes that shape our destinies, Walking with Ghosts reflects a remarkable life’s journey in all its hilarious and heartbreaking facets. Byrne’s career as an actor, writer, and director spanned both stage and screen. He has starred in over 80 films and his work on Broadway has earned him two Tony Award nominations. He earned a Golden Globe win for his work in the television drama, In Treatment.

Directed by three-time Emmy Award-winning director Lonny Price, the creative team also includes Sinéad McKenna (set and lighting designer), Joan O’Clery (costume designer), and Sinéad Diskin (composer & sound designer). Wagner Johnson Productions serve as Executive Producers.
