WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Ladies. Gentlemen. Allow us to present to you Moliere's Dom Juan or the Feast with the Statue in a production so authentic that it rivals in authenticity Moliere's own 1665 production at the Palais-Royal in Paris. Here, the National Theater of the United States of America recreates for you the work as Moliere himself intended it to be performed before King Louis the 14th and his queen, his noblemen, gentry and fools. The costumes were heavily researched and authentically made out of real materials to the exact specifications of the original designs, had Moliere made them himself. The set is the set that Moliere had originally intended and, in fact, employed in his workshop production of the play at the L'usine de Chocolat in Pateaux. The NTUSA's first execution of a classical text, this is sure to be the most important and authentic production that this poor but award-winning company has ever attempted. The National Theater of the United States of America is an Obie-winning troupe of professional entertainers and theater makers. They exist for your entertainment, enlightenment and greater glory. Its members are seven in number; its collaborators, countless; its reach, like the universe itself, ever and eternally expanding. And like the universe, the NTUSA has its share of exploding stars, white dwarves and black holes - shows that dazzle, repel and suck you in forever! And though they are not a government agency, a fact their lawyers were quite clear should be laid plain, they are here to fill the tragic void that that organization lacks. Through dedication and forbearance, and in the face of one thousand obstacles, The National Theater of the United States of America strives to bring you the very best - nay, the future of - theatrical entertainment.
