A Free Man of Color Summary

John Guare's (The House of Blue Leaves, Six Degrees of Separation) new play, A Free Man of Color, is a free-wheeling epic set in 1801 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.

Guare’s Gamble of Epic Proportions (NY Times)
A Free Man of Color is the first new Broadway play in 18 years by John Guare, an acclaimed and unconventional chronicler of self-deluding Americans.
