Actor bringing on-man show, ‘Moliere Than Thou’ to University of Jamestown Tuesday

Actor Timothy Mooney will bring his one-man show, “Moliere Than Thou,” on the life and plays of the great French comic playwright Moliere (Jean Baptiste Poquelin, 1622-73) to Jamestown this week.

His free show, sponsored by the Convocations Committee at the University of Jamestown, will take place at 7 p.m. Tuesday in DeNault Auditorium in the Reiland Fine Arts Center.

Moliere, regarded as one of France’s comic geniuses, wrote plays that are still relevant and funny today. Mooney, praised by the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation as a “Moliere incarnation” and “outstanding,” is making his final tour as the playwright after 13 years on the road.

The show will be given in English, using Mooney’s own translations.

Refreshments will be served afterward.
