David Tennant has returned to the West End stage to play a lothario in Patrick Marber’s Don Juan In Soho at the Wyndham’s theatre in London.

The limited run started on Friday 17th March 2017 and ends on Saturday 10th June. Rehearsals started on Monday 6th February.
The Press Night was Tuesday 28th March at 7pm.
The performances are Monday to Saturday each week at 7.30pm with a matinee on Saturdays only at 2.30pm.
The performance on Thursday 4th May will be captioned and on Tuesday 9th May will be audio described.

Link to purchase tickets.
A limited number of £20 day seats are available from 10am at the box office on the day of each performance.
Also TodayTix have a lottery for £20 front row for each performance.

David Tennant plays DJ who is described as 'the lordly DJ, a priapic lothario cutting a swathe through modern Soho.' The play is directed by Marber himself.

Gawn Grainger plays Louis and Adrian Scarborough plays Stan.

Don Juan In Soho is a contemporary take on the classic Molière comedy Dom Juan. The play first premiered at the Donmar Warehouse in December 2006 when it was directed by Michael Grandage.

The synopsis of the play according to Faber is:
'The infamous, amoral hedonist in a society entranced by sensation. Moliere's farcical, tragic, anarchic Don Juan (1665) is the inspiration for Patrick Marber's new play in which the action of the original is relocated to present day Soho, London.
Whereas Moliere condemned his anti-hero to a literal Hell, Marber condemns him to a hell of his own making.

The Arts Desk awards Don Juan In Soho five stars.
The sub-title of its review is 'David Tennant charms and excites in Patrick Marber’s energetic rewrite of Molière.'
The review includes 'Tennant conveys the visceral delights of sexual pursuit, and of sexual conquest. He throbs with lustful thoughts in a production that almost stinks of sex, sex, and yet more sex. Nimble on his feet, with darting eyes and a mixture of intense gazes and smooth physical contortions, Tennant is always on stage and has a magnetic presence. In one key speech his whinnies of contempt as he excoriates the “me generation” are fab to behold. He brings out not only his character’s cruelty, but also his immense charm. You really do believe that he can be irresistible.' Updated 30/3

Tennant told the Standard said: “There are two curtain calls so I get to do one as Don Juan and one as me which I quite like. He has a lot less inhibitions than I have so it’s quite nice to enjoy that for a few seconds longer.”'

One question he was asked was 'What about acting alongside David Tennant: do you feel as if you're in the presence of a huge star? ' He replied 'No, you really don't, and I mean that in the best sense. What is so lovely is that David's feet are firmly on the ground and because the majority of his formative experiences were on stage, he just speaks a language of the theater very clearly. I find that literally captivating and very easy to get along with.' Updated 10/3
