“Silly and seductive…hilarious and immensely well performed…an affectionate homage to an enduring classic”
David Cote, TimeOut, NY
“…the sweat on some actors’ uncovered bodies was more in-my-face than I would have preferred.”

Ladies. Gentlemen. Allow us to present to you The NTUSA’s Moliere’s Don Juan. In our first attempted execution of a classical text, we give you 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, probably.
With an audience in swivel chairs, the NTUSA performs Moliere’s timeless vision of religious and societal hypocrisy in 360 degree surround, in the sensuous landscape of 17th century Spain. There won’t be a dry seat in the house.
