Meet the legendary Don Juan as you’ve never seen him before in this classic comedy that has kept audiences laughing for centuries. Wherever he goes, the ultimate lover and antihero leaves behind a trail of broken hearts, ruined creditors, and scandalized society, trusting in his loyal but underpaid sidekick Sganarelle to clean up his unruly mess. But when an unearthly visitor arrives, Don Juan may be forced to finally confront his wicked ways. And Sganarelle may be out of a job. Sex, politics, religion--nothing is sacred in Molière’s dazzlingly funny take on history’s greatest libertine.
