Starring company member Tonya Beckman with guest artists Louis Davis, Chelsea Mayo, Stefany Pesta, Briana Gibson Reeves, Paul Reisman.

Who is Don Juan?

In the words of Molière, as translated by the incomparable Stephen Wadsworth, he is “the most vile miscreant that the world has ever produced: a dangerous man, a dog, a demon, and infidel, a heretic, who believes in nothing you revere or fear — not heaven, not saints, not God, not the Devil, Hell or werewolves; who delights in challenging your most cherished beliefs and lives to prove their folly in actions more lawless and licentious that anything you dare imagine; who is spending this lifetime as a hedonist pig, a pleasure-seeking, pain avoiding predator.”

All that and good looks? Swipe right.

Taffety Punk's company members act, dance, and make music. Sometimes we do all three at once. 

Bootleg Shakespeare
Henry VI, part 3

at the Folger Theatre
July 16, 2018  7:30pm

The company meets in the morning with only their lines memorized. After a single rehearsal, the show goes on — ready or not.

The Taffety Punk Bootleggers return this summer to complete the trilogy begun in 2016. This amazing plays, too often conflated into a single performance, are seldom performed on their own. We will stage the entire play, battles and all, in a single day.

Bootleg Shakespeare is the most exciting theatre event of the year. And it is free. 

Tickets will be available at the door on the day of the show.
