THE PUPPET-BASED musical about the excesses of the Celtic Tiger and the collapse of Anglo Irish Bank is to get a second stage run in the new year.

‘Anglo: The Musical’ will return to the stage at the Olympia Theatre having already had a two-week run at the Bord Gáis Energy Theatre this month where it received lukewarm reviews.

Featuring puppet versions of Bertie Ahern, Brian Cowen, Enda Kenny and Angela Merkel the play hit the headlines before it even hit the stage earlier this month when lawyers advised that the production team pull the Seán FitzPatrick puppet.


The show is written by Paul Howard, the author behind the best-selling Ross O’Carroll-Kelly books, and includes songs such as Put A Zero On The End, He’s A Friend and There’s Nothing Wrong With Bacon and Cabbage.

‘Anglo: The Musical’ will run from 10 January to 2 February at the Olympia Theatre in Dublin next year with tickets going on sale from Friday.
