Don Juan in Soho released the photo shoot promo and full cast last week and the rehearsals are set to start today. To prepare ourselves, let’s take a look at who else is joining David Tennant in this seemingly “dazzle” production.
Don Juan in Soho is loosely based on Molière’s tragicomedy ‘Don Juan’. The modern update transports the action to contemporary London and follows the final adventures of its debauched protagonist – a cruel seducer who lives only for pleasure. The play is also described as savagely funny and filthy.
