George Bernard Shaw took the popular legend of Don Juan and turned it on its head in this freewheeling, comedic adaptation. Ann Whitefield is determined to marry confirmed bachelor Jack Tanner -- and she'll chase him from London to Spain to hell and back. Performed as a staged reading by ShawChicago Theater Company, Man and Superman is more than 100 years old, but it remains an entertaining, thought-provoking piece. Shaw wrote the play almost on a dare, after being told by friends and critics that he would never be a great playwright until he tackled this popular story. So he did, and the resulting work became a masterpiece. Learn More

One of Shaw's best plays in a mesmerizing reading with superb acting. You'll be amazed at how you don't miss the scenery, costumes, props...just the power of Shaw's words dynamically brought to life by this wonderful ensemble. Don't miss it!
Written by Bernard Shaw
Directed by Robert Scogin
