A passionate, bawdy, funny and uplifting new musical that sings the
true story of one of the great love affairs of the 20th Century that
changed the face of literature forever.

Starring Matt Bogart (Jersey Boys) as Himself...the brilliant and hard
drinking Irish novelist James Joyce, and Jessica Burrows (Zhivago)
as Nora...the earthy chambermaid, Nora Barnacle, who became his
lover, his partner, and his muse for 29 years.  This bawdy and funny,
uplifting, and melodic new musical, Himself and Nora sings a
contemporary love story. A love which survived their exile from their
beloved Ireland, the condemnation of the Catholic church, and
ultimately helped to create some of the greatest writing of the 20th
Himself and Nora is alive with intelligent and witty tunes
ranging from boldly anthemic to raucously funny to moving poignancy.

Direct from its stunning success at the 2012 New York Musical
Theatre Festival, Jonathan Brielle's Himself and Nora has its first
musical theater offering at UCPAC’s Hamilton Stage.
