Lincoln Center Theater's world premiere of John Guare's sprawling drama A Free Man of Color begins previews at the Vivian Beaumont Theater Oct. 21.

According to LCT, "A Free Man of Color is a freewheeling epic set in 1801 New Orleans. Jacques Cornet, the title character, is a new world Don Juan and the wealthiest inhabitant of this sexually charged and racially progressive city. Jacques thinks all is well in his paradise until history intervenes, setting off a chain of events which no one, much less this free man of color, realizes is about to splinter the world."

Jeffery Wright leads a cast that also features Peter Bartlett, Arnie Burton, Veanne Cox, Paul Dano, Sara Gettelfinger, Justina Machado, John McMartin and Reg Rogers. George C. Wolfe directs.
