News   Mabou Mines' Celtic Stage Work Finn Begins at the Skirball Center March 4 Acclaimed experimental theatre company Mabou Mines stages the world premiere of Finn, a multimedia work based on the ancient Celtic legend of Finn McCool, beginning March 4 at the Skirball Center in Manhattan.

Sharon Fogarty directs the production, which fuses traditional storytelling with video game technology. Performances continue through March 7.

Finn is a collaboration between Irish writer Jocelyn Clarke, Czech digital artists Misha Zabranska and Misha Votruba (Misha Films), and traditional Scottish composer Phil Cunningham with Irish composer Manus Lunny.

Robbie Collier Sublett stars in the title role, with fellow cast members Jarlath Conroy, Brandon Goodman and Dion Mucciacito.

Finn, according to press notes, "follows a boy's coming-of-age quest to avenge his father's death and seize leadership of the clan. Through his journey, he encounters a series of trials testing his moral fortitude."

The production has set design by Milan David, costume design by Meganne George, lighting design by Mary Louise Geiger and sound design by John Plenge. Visit SkirballCenter, or phone (212) 352-3101. The Skirball Center is located at 566 LaGuardia Place at Washington Square South.
