Recommended for 16 +. Children under the age of 5 are not permitted in the theatre.

Our Recommendation
Under the excellent direction of George C. Wolfe, John Guare's sprawling, ambitious historical pageant of a play tells the story of an international, interracial America circa 1801, at a time when New Orleans was owned by Spain and people of different races were allowed to mix freely. In this setting, the charismatic Jacques Cornet is able to live a luxurious life of style, excess, and influence - until it's threatened by the possibility of New Orleans being acquired by the United States. Guare imparts lots of historical information in a fast and furious presentational manner that keeps the play from being weighed down by the exposition, and a plethora of sexual double entendres (mostly related to ladies' man Cornet's prowess) keep the drama from getting too heavy. But the best parts of A Free Man of Color come during the character moments (e.g. the evolving relationship between Cornet and his slave Murmur) and during the strikingly staged sections that bring history alive (Meriwether Lewis's journey into the unknown "white spaces" of the West on his famous expedition with William Clark is a highlight). Though not perfect, A Free Man of Color is an important new American play that is receiving a top-notch production from Lincoln Center Theatre.
