Don Juan In Chicago Opens Thursday April 30, 2009 At Collin Theatre Center

April 27, 2009 – The theatre department at Collin College will present Don Juan in Chicago, beginning Thursday April 30, 2009 and continuing through Sunday May 10, 2009. Tickets range from $6.00 for students and seniors to $8.00 for Adults. Seating for this production is limited and is currently sold out for several performances.

Don Juan in Chicago is written by David Ives and directed by Robin Armstrong. The NY Post says, “Ives has a lively wit…an original mind, and a neatly topsy-turvy way with life's little realities…[DON JUAN] is a brashly funny way to spend a couple of hours."

Don Juan in Chiacgo is a sexy comedy about the search for eternal bliss. Don Juan is a handsome, rich, sexually naïve nobleman in sixteenth-century Spain.  His servant, Leporello, urges him to find a girlfriend and lead a normal life, but the Don is more interested in finding the meaning of life through books and alchemy. Afraid he won't have time to find it, Don Juan calls up the Devil and cuts a deal that grants him (and Leporello) immortality ... as long as Don Juan seduces a different woman every day. Four hundred years later, exhausted by endless liaisons, Don Juan and Leporello grapple with the sexual mores of contemporary urban America.

Don Juan in Chicago will be presented by the Collin Theatre Center at Collin College, in the Black Box Theatre, 2800 E. Spring Creek Parkway, Plano 75074.  Performances are April 30, May 1 - 2 and May 6 - 9 at 8:00pm, with matinees on May 3, 9 - 10 at 2:15pm.  Tickets are $8 for General Admission and $6 for Students and Senior Citizens (55+).  Group rates are available.  For tickets and other information call the Collin Theatre Box Office  at 972.881.5809 or visit us on the web at www.collintheatrecenter.com.
