David Tennant will make a return to the West End in March 2017 to play the title role in Patrick Marber’s Don Juan in Soho.
The former Doctor Who star will lead the cast in the production, which will be presented at Wyndham’s Theatre for a strictly limited eleven week run.
“Please don’t be charmed, he’s not a lovable rogue…” Loosely based on Molière tragicomedy ‘Don Juan’, this savagely funny and filthy 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.
