About the Author
Timothy Mooney, author of the new acting textbook "Acting at the Speed of Life; Conquering Theatrical Style" and "The Big Book of Moliere Monologues" has given over a hundred thousand students their first introduction to Moliere through his one-man play, Moliere Than Thou. Mooney also presents one monologue from every Shakespeare play in the one-man show, "Lot o' Shakespeare," and a series of great historical speeches in "The Greatest Speech of All Time." Mr. Mooney is the former Founder and Editor of "The Script Review" and was the Artistic Director of Chicago's "Stage Two Theatre," where he produced nearly fifty plays in five years. When Stage Two turned to the classics, Mr. Mooney started writing new versions of the plays of Moliere, with a mischievous sense of rhyme. He has now written seventeen iambic pentameter variations of the plays of Moliere, produced around the world. High School productions of Mr. Mooney's "The Misanthrope," "The Miser," "The Imaginary Invalid," and "Tartuffe" have gone on to state finals in Massachusetts, Wisconsin, Virginia, North Carolina and Alabama, while his "Doctor in Spite of Himself," took third place in the Scottish Community Drama Association National Festival, and was a finalist at Italy's Sanremo Global Education Festival. Mooney created "Criteria" as a short story, in 2002, and has been performing it live as a "One-Man Comic Sci-Fi Thriller" since 2003. Mr. Mooney continues to present his one-man shows across North America and recently presented both "Moliere Than Thou" and "Lot o' Shakespeare" at the Oregon Shakespeare Festival, as well as festivals, schools and conferences across the United States and Canada. He can be found in hundreds of videos on the internet, presenting Moliere, Shakespeare and much more, along with clips from his acting workshops.
