New York City
Heavily censored in Moliere’s time, this classic story features the infamous Don Juan, as he defies every warning to change his ways – from abandoning his wife whom he abducted from a convent, to seducing a young peasant girl, to conning his own father. It is not until the supernatural intervenes that the evil seducer even considers a moral turnaround. This vital adaptation embroiders the conventions of French drama and commedia dell’arte, with director Stephen Wadsworth’s exquisite theatrical sensibilities.
