David Hennessy directed and choreographed the Tipperary Musical Society’s production of High Society at the excellent Simon Ryan Theatre and he showed a fine mature style with a brittle social comedy with a first rate musical society cast.

Tipperary were celebrating their 30th Anniversary production and this new version, first seen in America about 1998 and in London in 2005 is based on the 1958 movie that featured Grace Kelly, Frank Sinatra and Bing Crosby with True Love as the crooning hit from the movie that was based on another movie The Philadelphia Story (1940) that feature Katherine Hepburn, Cary Grant and James Stewart.
