A Free Man Of Color Broadway

$65 - $115

A FREE MAN OF COLOR is a freewheeling epic set in 1802 New Orleans. Jacques Cornet, the title character, is a new world Don Juan and the wealthiest inhabitant of this sexually charged and racially progressive city. Jacques thinks all is well in his paradise until history intervenes, setting off a chain of events which no one, much less this free man of color, realizes is about to splinter the world.



A FREE MAN OF COLOR marks John Guare’s return to Lincoln Center Theater where his plays The House of Blue Leaves, Six Degrees of Separation, Four Baboons Adoring The Sun (all three nominated for the Tony Award for Best Play) and Chaucer in Rome, were produced. His other plays include Rich and Famous, Landscape of the Body, Marco Polo Sings A Solo, Bosoms and Neglect, Lydie Breeze, Women and Water, A Few Stout Individuals and His Girl Friday. He won a Tony Award for the book of the musical Two Gentlemen of Verona and also wrote the book for the musical Sweet Smell of Success. Director George C. Wolfe will make his LCT debut with this production. Former Artistic Director of the Public Theater, his Broadway directorial credits include Caroline or Change, Topdog/Underdog, Elaine Stritch At Liberty, Bring in ‘Da Noise, Bring in Da’ Funk, The Tempest, On the Town, The Wild Party, Jelly’s Last Jam and Angels in America. His film credits include Lackawanna Blues and Nights in Rodanthe.
