May is going to be a cracker.
Yesterday was the opening night of Pygmalion in the Abbey Theatre. Review to follow shortly - the good people of Twitter seem to have enjoyed it so far.
Today sees the start of a new show in the Burlington, Ragus.
Today is also of course a "First Thursday", the day each month when a range of cultural spaces will remain open in the evening to give you an extra chance to see them.
On Saturday there'll be celebrations over in Fallon & Bryne to mark their 5th anniversary. (I've been a regular shopper there for all that time.)
As Nina mentioned earlier, on 11th May there's a UNESCO City of Literature event, Murder in the City.
Also on 11th May there's The Beauty Queen of Leenane in the Gaiety. It runs until 4th June.
Later that week, on 13th May, the Dublin Dance Festival starts.
A few days later and we're into Catch Up On Culture Week by the Irish Museums Association.
On 23rd May the Dublin Writers Festival begins, continuing until 29th May.
