Join Juilliard James S. Marcus Faculty Fellow Stephen Wadsworth for a discussion about the much-censored and oft-bowdlerized play Don Juan. In his new book, Wadsworth revives Molière’s widely controversial script and brings modern audiences into the hour of the play's premiere, the high stakes for all involved, and the alarming effect the text and its ideas clearly had on those present.
“Call Don Juan a masterly restoration of a magical new play. Mr. Wadsworth has carved a niche in theatre history.” --The New York Times
