Irish comedy megastar Brendan O’Carroll – alias Agnes Brown – of the smash hit television series Mrs. Brown’s Boys is packing up the whole family and bringing the live stage show to New Zealand.
Following 48 sold out arena performances of Mrs. Brown Rides Again during their 2014 national tour, Brendan O’Carroll alias Agnes Brown and the cast of Mrs. Brown’s Boys have announced that they will return to Australia for another national tour from January 2016 and are extending the tour to include Auckland and Christchurch.
Mammy is bringing the family back down under. After being named the biggest selling comedy show ever in Australia, why wouldn’t she?
“Once the audience likes it, we don’t mind what anyone else says. We just finished a tour of Australia and in Melbourne alone sold over 80,000 tickets”, Brendan O’Carroll said.
Thousands of New Zealanders crossed the Tasman to see the show during the 2014 tour and after meeting so many New Zealanders, Brendan O’Carroll decided he would tour to New Zealand in 2016.
The Mrs. Brown phenomenon has clocked up millions of DVD sales worldwide with the show picking up multiple UK television awards including Scottish, Irish and British BAFTAS and People’s Choice awards. In New Zealand more than 500,000 people watch each amazing episode of Mrs. Brown’s Boys on TV One.
Good Mourning Mrs. Brown starring Mrs. Brown is the second play in the Mrs. Brown Trilogy of five! The audience will relive some of their favourite moments from the hit TV series live on stage.
Good Mourning Mrs. Brown finds the Brown family trying to tackle the wake and funeral of Grandad Brown. There is just one problem. Grandad Brown is not dead! Dermot and his now pregnant wife Maria are living with Mrs. Brown, much to Maria’s dismay – and the pressure from her to get a place of their own has Dermot contemplating giving up his career in “Promotions” and returning to his life of crime with his old partner Buster Brady. Cathy Brown interrupts her new romance, to give partnership counselling to Rory and Dino who are having problems. Father Quinn is beginning to doubt his vocation. What he needs is a sign – with the help of Agnes Brown he might have to settle for a miracle.
New Zealand tour dates, venues and on sale dates will be announced in August 2014.
