A World Premiere Play Written & Directed by Moisés Kaufman, Tony and Emmy-nominated Director and Playwright, and Recipient of the National Medal of Arts

Adapted from Jonathan Jakubowicz’s Bestselling Novel

October 17 – November 12, 2023

This transformative production is set to captivate audiences with its adrenaline-fueled narrative, exploring the greed and corruption that shook the very foundations of Venezuela, while shedding light on the state of democracy worldwide. Las Aventuras de Juan Planchard promises to be an enthralling experience for theater enthusiasts, performed in Spanish with English supertitles to ensure accessibility for all.

At the heart of this gripping play is Juan Planchard, a young Venezuelan whose fervent belief in President Hugo Chavez’s ideology is matched only by his thirst for personal gain. Witness Juan’s meteoric rise to immense wealth through corrupt dealings with the government, only to face the harrowing consequences of his actions. Through Juan’s journey, the play delves into the intricate web of patronage and corruption that contributed to one of the largest robberies in human history, all set against the backdrop of Venezuela’s tumultuous last two decades.

Moisés Kaufman’s adaptation is a searing indictment of the ruling class in Venezuela, resonating deeply in today’s global political landscape, wherever democracy is at risk. Infusing the raw intensity of a high-stakes action film and the heart-pounding suspense of a political thriller, Las Aventuras de Juan Planchard masterfully exposes the mindset and ideals of Venezuela’s present-day ruling elite, unveiling their unrestrained excess and insatiable pursuit of power at any cost.
