Monologue master performs at Oak Ridge

In a dazzling display of memorization and characterization, Timothy Mooney has memorized one monologue from every Shakespeare play, capturing the most stirring speeches, the most outrageous situations and the most sonorous delicious soliloquies ever to emerge from Shakespeare’s pen.

Following an appearance at the Oregon Shakespeare Festival, “Lot o’ Shakespeare,” a dynamic tour de force, comes to Oak Ridge High School’s theater, 1120 Harvard Way in El Dorado Hills.

This one-man show features 38 monologues chosen entirely at random by the spinning of a bingo cage.

The audience plays along on their individual “IAGO” cards and the first to match four play titles in a row wins a T-shirt.

While the game turns it all into fun, in the process the audience discovers the breadth, the excitement and the accessibility of Shakespeare’s works.

Mooney’s performance is literate, enthusiastic and athletic, bounding from hilarious comedies to passionate tragedies, to his epic histories — all at the drop of a ping-pong ball.

The one night only performance is Tuesday, Feb. 28, at 7 p.m. in Oak Ridge High School’s perfoming arts building.

Tickets are $10. For more information call 916-947-PLAY.
