How Do You Get Through the Night? Molly Pope tackles this question by inviting an audience to her 6th floor walkup for a sharp, witty, comedically candid musical. As dim dusk gives way to manic night, the one woman show breaks the fourth wall to tell an intimate and poignant story about coping with humanity, mental health, and keeping yourself company.

From the critically-acclaimed artist who The New York Times described as, "[an] irreverent wit [with] multigenerational cultural savvy..." comes a special world premiere cabaret.

The Kimmel Center is proud to present the world premiere of Polly Mope, which was conceived during the artist's time as a Kimmel Center Theater Residency artist in June 2017 with her collaborator Matt Aument. The Kimmel Center’s Theater Residency Program is created to help support theater artists create new work in partnership with Joe’s Pub at The Public Theater. The Theater Residency program is generously supported by the Lida Foundation.
