PRETTY Dundalk pop singer Andrea Corr is being tipped to make her broadway debut in Brian Friel’s ‘Dancing at Lughnasa’ this October.

The 37-year-old impressed theatre critics when she played Christina Mundy in the 2009 London revival of the famous play.

The Irish Repertory Theatre now plans to bring the production back to New York after a 20 year hiatus, however, casting has yet to be confirmed.

Meanwhile, Andrea made a recent appearance on TV3’s Ireland AM where she explained that she is set to re-launch her latest album.

Andrea said that her second studio album, entitled ‘Lifelines’, will be relaunched with a new single. Andrea sang the single at a number of concerts while promoting her album.

It received a very positive response from fans, many of whom questioned why it hadn’t been put on the Lifelines album. As a result, Andrea decided to re-release the album with the popular song.

Lifelines, which consists of covers, was released to the iTunes Store on April 17, on May 29 as a digital download, and May 30 last on CD.

By mid-June, Lifelines had reached No 40 in the Irish album charts and No 48 in the UK album charts.

Produced by John Reynolds and Brian Eno, it includes versions of songs by a range of artists. The artists include The Velvet Underground, Kirsty MacColl, Harry Nilsson, and Ron Sexsmith.
