Peg O' My Heart

She's young. She's strong. She's Irish . . . and she's about to shake up everyone's world! It's the 1920s, and Peg is traveling from lower Manhattan to the countryside of England where bank failures are shocking upper-class society. Who knew one girl could single-handedly burst everyone's bubble? Come meet Peg . . . Peg O' My Heart!

What an impressive show peg is! Even Backstage.com thinks so!

In this musical version of a 1912 play, the plot may be thin but the tunes are truly tuneful, in an old-fashioned show neatly performed.

Chichester Revival of Caryl Churchill's Top Girls to Transfer to West End - Playbill.com

While in England, Peg stays with her insufferable Aunt Monica Chichester. I thought it hilarious that the name still means class, sass, and money in England to this very day! Apparently all those rich relatives' descendants own a theatre company!

The revival of Caryl Churchill's Top Girls, currently playing at Chichester's Minerva Theatre through July 16 in a production helmed by Max Stafford-Clark, who also directed the Royal Court's original 1982 premiere of the play, will transfer to the West End's Trafalgar Studios.

Time for your History Lesson!

Peg o' My Heart, a comedy, played in New York City from December 20, 1912 to May 30, 1914. It afterward had a long run in London. The playwright was John Hartley Manners, a London-born playwright of Irish extraction. Peg o' My Heart was his greatest hit, which starred his wife, Laurette Taylor on Broadway in her greatest stage triumph. (Wikipedia.org)

Learn about ALL the wonderful performers who sang the song "Peg O' My Heart" before it ever surfaced as a musical! The Ziegfeld Follies even performed this popular standard in 1913!

"Peg o' My Heart" is a popular song written by Alfred Bryan and Fred Fisher. It was published on March 15, 1913 and it featured in the 1913 musical Ziegfeld Follies. The song, performed by Max Harris and his Novelty Trio (based on a version by The Harmonicats), was used as the theme of the BBC minis

Tonight, we performed at the MITF launch party! Several wonderful musicals and plays strutted their stuff in a very "karaoke" setting, but Peg pulled it out! Our performers Brittney Lee Hamilton and Jeremy Benton, dressed in costume, were absolutely dashing in their period costumes. The crowd went wild for "Peg O' My Heart!"

Minnie

(Michael) She is a terrier mix, about 4 years old and about 9 pounds. Minnie was found as a stray and rescued by Pet Rescue of Larchmont, NY. The Berlonis
adopted her in the spring of 2007 to be their daughter's pet dog. Once Minnie arrived home,
she started learning commands as other dogs were being trained, and it was obvious
that Minnie was desperate for a part in the business, too. She worked in the yet to be
released movie Someday This Pain Will Be Useful to You. Her first stage appearance was
with her owner, Jenna, in the Ivoryton Playhouse's production of Barnum as the circus dog.
