A thrilling new adaptation of James Joyce's, Penelope Chapter, “Yes! Reflections of Molly Bloom”, is set to come to the Town Hall Theatre on May 30.

Traditional Irish music fans are in for a treat as the accompanying music to the show was especially recorded by Moloney’s father, Paddy Moloney, legendary founder and leader of The Chieftains, who passed away in 2021. The show was awarded Winner of the Outer Critics Circle Award for best solo performance during its premiere run in New York.
