I've always been a fan of the theater - whether it's a broadway production or a local show. I even worked for my University's theater department as an undergrad. So, you can imagine my interest when I heard news of The Abbey Theater of Dublin and its fall season. The lineup (listed below) is perfect for a family outing and getting kids interested in the performing arts!
