The Gaiety Theatre have a packed line-up this March. Whether you are looking for a literary classic, a punk rock musical or something for children – this programme will appeal to people of all tastes.
The Mirror Crack’d
The first ever stage adaptation of Agatha Christie’s much-loved Miss Marple thriller, this production arrives at the Gaiety following a premiere at the Salisbury Playhouse in February and a UK tour.
Times are changing. Girls are wearing trousers and Hollywood has come to a sleepy English village in the shape of a beautiful film star. Miss Marple (Coronation Street’s Susie Blake) is left to feel that the world has no need of her now until a mysterious death calls into question the past of all those present. Everyone’s version of events is different. Can Miss Marple unravel the tangle of lies? Tickets for the show are from €29.50
Dates: March 12 – 16
The special 10th anniversary tour of American Idiot – the ground-breaking Tony award-winning musical from rockers Green Day – is coming to Dublin. It tells the story of three boyhood friends, each searching for meaning in a post 9/11 world and features hit songs from the pop-punk band like “Boulevard of Broken Dreams,” “21 Guns,” “Wake Me Up When September Ends”, “Holiday” and the acclaimed titular track.
American Idiot stars Waterloo Road’s Tom Milner, 2013’s X Factor third place runner-up Luke Friend and 2016 X Factor finalist Sam Lavery. Tickets are from €21.
Dates: Mar 19 – 23

Based on the smash hit DreamWorks animation, Madagascar – The Musical follows all your favourite crack-a-lackin’ friends as they escape from their home in New York’s Central Park Zoo and find themselves on an unexpected journey to the madcap world of King Julien’s Madagascar. Starring X Factor winner Matt Terry as Alex the Lion, organisers say you’ll have no choice but to move it, move it. Tickets are from €26.
