New Image College of Fine Arts professional acting school is proud to present Don Juan in Soho, the 2006 update of the classic Gothic fable written by renowned theatre scribe and wit Patrick Marber.
For centuries, the legend of Don Juan has captured the minds (and other parts) of theatregoers. Molière's 1600-era tragedy of the callous, heartless womanizer and his ever-suffering conquests, lackeys and enemies has come to define not just a certain type of play, but a certain kind of man. And now that man, the ultimate reckless roué, equally charming and chilling, has come to modern-day New York City. Debutantes beware!
Don Juan in Soho is a ribald, vulgar and darkly hilarious re-telling, in which the titular Don Juan, a wealthy man-about-town, prowls the socialite lairs of Manhattan to add more names to his Blackberry — containing his list of over 5,000 sexual conquests. He'll use any tactic, any lie or outrageous ruse to get what he wants; he's insatiable and seemingly unstoppable. But after victimizing the virginal Irish beauty Elvira, Don is hunted down by the lady's two angry IRA brothers, and tension mounts as all their intertwined plotlines converge upon a hellish revenge.
The British Theatre Review called Don Juan in Soho "entrancing" and "extremely funny" in its 2006 debut. Don Juan played for three nights only at New Image College on May 17, 18 and 19 and is directed by New Image acting instructor John Emmet Tracy.
