Faust is one of the pillars of Western literature. This classic drama presents the story of the scholar Faust, tempted into a contract with the Devil in return for a life of sensuality and power. Enjoyment rules until Faust's emotions are stirred by a meeting with Gretchen, and the tragic outcome brings Part 1 to an end. Part 2, written much later in Goethe's life, places his eponymous hero in a variety of unexpected circumstances, causing him to reflect on humanity and its attitudes to life and death.

"If it's been a while since you tackled Goethe's FAUST--like, forever--don't wait a moment longer. John R. Williams's sparkling English translation is delightful, full of wit and delicious rhymes, and would be reason enough to fling yourself at it, but this full-cast production more than doubles the pleasure. The actors play it as if we were all Faust and hell were going to be a lot worse than other people. The performances are marvelous, and the sound effects clever and often gorgeous (the choir!). After this rendering of "Walpurgisnacht," you'll never see Halloween the same again. One might call this Harry Potter for grown-ups, except that the good guys--well, I wouldn't want to give away the ending. What a great theatrical experience. B.G.
