Three cheers to Bonnie Monte for bringing back to the Kirby theatre the electrifying actress Aedin Moloney. Aedin returns to do The Alchemist by Ben Jonson - adapted and directed by the NJ treasure Bonnie Monte, the STNJ’s artistic director. Aedin writes: “I'm so excited and grateful to be invited back again this year to this wonderful theatre”

Here is what we wrote in 2013 when we awarded Aedin Moloney a “Footlights” award:

The Shakespeare Theatre of New Jersey, nationally acclaimed for its productions of the plays of William Shakespeare and other classics, has launched the Fall portion of its 2013 season with a non-classic, the world premiere of A Most Dangerous Woman. Written by Cathy Tempelsman and directed by Tony-Award winner Richard Maltby, Jr., this is an outstanding play about an exceptional woman, George Eliot, starring an exceptional actress, Aedin Moloney (photo above). Ms. Moloney, making her Shakespeare Theatre debut, is absolutely perfect in the role of the famed Victorian author George Eliot.
