Molière than Thou - Tim Mooney

In his seven years of touring with Molière than Thou, Tim Mooney has introduced more than 50,000 people to Molière. His one-man show, with audience participation, is an anthology of his own translated scenes from Molière's classic, still hilarious, witty and relevant comedies.

In typical 17th century curled wigs and costume, Mooney changes both character and personality by adding a tie or shedding a jacket. He gives the setting and theme of each selected play (The Misanthrope, The School for Wives, The Bourgeois Gentleman, Sganarelle or the Imaginary Cuckold, Tartuffe, Don Juan or the Stone Guest, The Doctor in spite of Himself, The Imaginary Invalid, The Schemings of Scapin, and The Precious Young Maidens) before assuming its principal role. Presented in rhyming verse, Molière has never been more accessible.

The author of 16 celebrated new versions of the plays of Molière, Mooney has also composed a self-help book on acting, Acting at the Speed of Life.

Admission is free.
