About this show

Don Juan a short one-act that will be presented in the same evening is an adaption by Marvin Kaye of Edmond Rostand's work of the same name. In the Rostand version of the legend, the Don bargains with the Devil and wins ten more years to debauch women. When the fiend finally comes to collect him, he tells Don Juan he won't take him to Hell until he has thoroughly humbled his spirit. The Don is sure his proud soul will never succumb, but the Devil brings back the ghosts of the women the Don has slept with, and they pick him apart until he has nothing left to be proud of. Mister Jack is an interactive Don Juan comedy by playwright, novelist and editor Marvin Kaye, cofounder of The Open Book. Comedic improvisation is an important part of Mister Jack. In Mister Jack the audience is given the opportunity to ask questions about love and sex of the title character who is introduced as "the world's greatest lover."
