By turns playful, philosophical, haunting and beautiful...

Why See The Giacomo Variations?

The multi-talented John Malkovich (Dangerous Liaisons, Burn After Reading, The Infernal Comedy) portrays the master scoundrel and serial seducer during his twilight years, making its New York debut fresh from the world premiere in Vienna.

The Venetian author and adventurer Giacomo Casanova ? writer, poet, gambler, military man, prison escapee, friend of princes, popes and cardinals, and above all, LOVER has surely lived one of the most extraordinary lives of all time.

The Giacomo-Variations is the second project in collaboration with acclaimed stage and screen actor John Malkovich, following the sensational worldwide success of The Infernal Comedy.
