Don Juan in Chicago, by David Ives, follows the life of Don Juan, beginning with him as a handsome, rich, sexually naive nobleman in sixteenth-century Spain. His servant, Leporello, urges the him to find a girlfriend and lead a normal life, but the Don is more interested in finding the meaning of life through books and alchemy. Afraid he is running out of time, the Don calls up the Devil and cuts a deal that grants him (and Leporello) immortality so long as the Don can seduce a different woman each day. Four hundred years later, exhausted by endless sex Don Juan and Leporello grapple with the sexual mores of contemporary urban America.
