Today in Theatre History

It happened in 1622 -- The BIRTHDAY of Jean-Baptiste Poquelin, known by the nom de plume Moliere (1622-1673), one of France's greatest playwrights, who will go on to write Tartuffe, School for Wives, Scapin, The Misanthrope, The Miser, and many other plays. He will collapse during a performance of his own The Imaginary Invalid and later die.
