Irish Repertory Theatre's Candida, George Bernard Shaw's comedy about a preacher's wife pulled between the pulpit and a poet, opened March 7.



Tony and Academy Award-winner Tony Walton directs a cast that includes Melissa Errico (High Society, Amour, White Christmas), Brian Murray (The Crucible), Ciaran O'Reilly, Sam Underwood, Xanthe Elbrick and Josh Grisetti.

Candida, according to Irish Rep notes, "tells the story of Reverend James Morell and how his comfortable marriage to Candida is shaken by the arrival of the young poet, Marchbanks. Both men adore her, in quite different ways and for quite different reasons, and she is attracted to them for their very different qualities. Marchbanks believes Candida has a choice. Morell is devastated by the idea of losing her. They both forget she is her own woman."

Here's a look at the opening night:
