For 142 years The Gaiety Theatre has given the people of Dublin opera, musicals, drama, revues, comedy, concerts, dance, festivals and pantomime. Amid the laughter and tears, through times of war and affluence, The Grand Old Lady of South King Street has remained a vital and ever changing expression of Irish culture and Irish society.
The theatre has long been home to the familiar faces of Maureen Potter, Niall Toibin, John B. Keane, Anna Manahan, Des Keogh and Rosaleen Linehan, whose bronze handprints are set into the pavement in front the theatre. Together with those of Luciano Pavarotti and Brian Friel, these prints are a testament to the longstanding association of great artists with Dublin’s Gaiety Theatre.
