Women of Ireland

Taking its moniker from the traditional Irish patriotic anthem, “Mná na hÉireann,” the all-female troupe of Women of Ireland pay homage to the motherland with a rousing concert punctuated by lilting ballads, virtuosic fiddling, and sure-footed Irish step-dancing (among other dance styles). A live band underscores the artistry, and special guests such as four-time world champion and former Riverdance lead dancer Anthony Fallon might be spotted among the dancers. By turns mystical and sensuous, the show is never above a playful tap-dance atop a piano or tickling the hobbit parts of the brain with a bodhrán solo.

The Palace Theatre

At the heart of Stamford Center for the Arts is The Palace Theatre, hailed as “Connecticut’s Most Magnificent” when it opened in 1927. Its grandeur was designed by architect Thomas Lamb of Madison Square Garden fame, who outfitted the vaudeville palace with a gilded proscenium and sweeping, pearl-shaded balconies. The opulence caught the eye of the community, leading the Stamford Advocate to proclaim “HUNDREDS TURNED AWAY, UNABLE TO OBTAIN TICKETS, AS THE NEW PALACE THEATRE OPENS DOORS.”

Although today’s tickets are easier to obtain thanks to technology, the cultural fervor surrounding The Palace continues. Audiences flock to the historic theater for performances from the Stamford Symphony and the Ballet School of Stamford. However, the venue also keeps its vaudevillian roots firmly planted by hosting comedians, musical acts, and surgeries on ventriloquist dummies atop its massive stage.
