"DON JUAN"opening night
The Shakespeare Theatre Company's Lansburgh Theatre
The opening night of the Shakespeare Theatre
Company's production of Molière's "Don Juan."
Pre-show buzz was trumped by intermission cha er as patrons
wondered what would become of Don Juan (Jeremy Webb)....
Would he ever let go of his philandering, self-serving ways? At
the post-performance reception, conversation turned to praise
for the technical quality of the production (the classical sets,
staging, costumes, and foot lighting were superb) and the skilled
execution of the French playwright's rapid-fi re, language-laden
text, which Michael Milligan (Sganarelle) handles with particular
aplomb. See it before closing night on March 19th.
