David Tennant returns to the West End in March 2017 to play the title role in Patrick Marber’s Don Juan In Soho.
The production will preview at Wyndham’s Theatre from 17 March 2017, with press night on 28 March 2017. It will complete its strictly limited eleven week run on 10 June 2017. Tickets go on public sale today, 2 November 2016, at 1pm.
“Please don’t be charmed, he’s not a lovable rogue…” Loosely based on Molière tragicomedy ‘Don Juan’, this savagely funny and filthy modern update transports the action to contemporary London and follows the final adventures of its debauched protagonist – a cruel seducer who lives only for pleasure.
Direction is by Patrick Marber with set and costume designs by Anne Fleischle (who won the Olivier Award for Hangmen at the same venue) and sound and music by Adam Cork. Further casting will be announced at a later date.
