PHOTO CALL: A Look Back at Martin McDonagh's Work in NYC
05 Mar 2010
Martin McDonagh's latest dark comedy, A Behanding in Spokane, opened on Broadway March 4. Playbill.com takes a look back, in pictures, at the playwright's previous work.
McDonagh, known for his biting, darkly comic style, penned the plays The Beauty Queen of Leenane, The Lonesome West, The Pillowman and The Lieutenant of Inishmore — all seen on Broadway (and Tony Award-nominated). Off-Broadway has also seen productions of his The Cripple of Inishmaan (twice) and A Skull in Connemara. He earned an Academy Award for his first foray into film with the short, "Six Shooter," and followed it up with an Academy Award nomination for his feature-length "In Bruges."
Here is a look back at McDonagh's work in New York:
Tail! Spin! is the hysterical new comedy drawn verbatim from the leaked e-mails, raunchy texts and tell-tale tweets that brought down politicians Anthony Weiner, Mark Sanford, Larry Craig and Mark Foley. With SNL Alum Rachel Dratch! Only $55!
