By Christopher Marlowe
Directed by Greg Johnson
A soul is a terrible thing to waste, especially when you can sell it in a bargain with the Devil.
Veteran Broom Street director Greg Johnson (Fire Exit) puts a new spin on the Christopher Marlowe classic, Dr. Faustus, this spring at Broom Street Theater. The play opens Friday, April 20 and runs every Friday and Saturday at 8:00 p.m. and Sundays at 2:00 p.m. through May 27.
Featuring a post apocalyptic theme, the production utilizes the principles and methods of Paul Sills' Story Theater.
"Dr. Faustus is sure to be a carnival ride through hell that blurs the lines between illusion and reality, and a night of theater that the audience won't forget for years to come," says Johnson.
Featuring Elliot Schultz as Dr. Faustus and Scott Rawson as Mephistopheles, the cast also includes an ensemble of veteran Broom Streeters Bree Bensen, Linda Hartay, Joseph Lutz, Greg Johnson, and Heather Renken. Newcomers Kat Demorais, David Holombe, Tyler Norman, and Peter Steicher round out the cast.
Tickets are $8.00 and may be purchased at the door. For furtherinformation or to make reservations call Broom Street Theater at (608) 244-8338 or to the theater's website at www.broomstreet.org.
