Mr. Dooley’s America tells the tale of Mr. Dooley, an Irish pub owner in the 1890s who wrote satiric daily editorials in The Chicago Evening Post about the issues of the day. On the president, Dooley opines, “I can’t truthfully say that there’s a presidential possibility in sight. And I looked in the White House too.” More wit and wisdom throughout the show!
“CHARMING” -The New York Times
“the writing is solid, the formula works like a charm… Moore knew what she was doing when she cast Dowling and Keogh. Their twinkling eyes only begin to describe the life they bring to their roles.” -TheaterMania
