Moliere's Don Juan is not the lothario of legend. Instead, the master of French comedy envisioned a political and religious skeptic who spoke out against the evils of his age. March 11-April 13, Seattle Repertory Theatre will be home to that Don Juan in a new translation by Stephen Wadsworth, who also directs.
Adam Stein stars as Don Juan. Francesaca Faridany is his Donna Elvira, Bruce Turk is Don Carlos, Cameron Folmar is Sganarelle and Burton Curtis is Pierrot. Also in the cast are Gilbert Cruz (Gusman), Mary Bacon (Charlotte), Laura Kenny (Mathurine), Frank Corrrado (Don Luis), Cleopatra Bertelson, Sean Mitchell and Ray Gonzalez.
Wadsworth helmed Seattle Rep's An Ideal Husband, Design for Living and The Game of Love and Chance, as well as Seattle Opera's recent Ring Cycle. He published "Marivaux: Three Plays" and wrote the opera A Quiet Place with Leonard Bernstein.
Tickets are $44-$15. Seattle Repertory Theatre is located in the Seattle Center at the corner of Second Avenue and Mercer Street. For reservations, call (206) 443-2222. Seattle Repertory Theatre is on the web at http://www.seattlerep.org.
