The Performing Arts Company at SUNY Fredonia will be performing the show "Don Juan in Chicago" by David Ives this weekend.
The show is a comedic retelling of the legend of Don Juan, a very attractive and intelligent 30-year-old virgin in 1599 Seville, Spain. He cuts a literal deal with the Devil for immortality to have the time to discover the truths and meaning of life, but to maintain that immortality he must seduce a different woman every night before midnight. The show fast forwards to modern-day Chicago where Don has not had the time to do or study any of the things he wanted to, as he struggles to find another woman he questions if Hell could be as bad as this shallow life he is leading. While he contemplates this, a series of very strange characters continue to "farce in and out of doors" trying to find that one secret to life we're all searching for - love.
Performance dates are Friday and Saturday at 8 p.m. and Sunday at 2 p.m. in the Alice E. Bartlett Theate on the SUNY Fredonia Campus.
Tickets are $6 for the general public and $3 for children and students and can be purchased through the Central Ticket Office at SUNY Fredonia. Contact them by phone at 673-3501 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
