A Tragicomic Phantasmagoria
Directed by Brian Rott and M.L. Cogar
With Tom Reed* as Doctor Faustus and Jessi Miller as Mephistopheles
John Faustus is ill. An esteemed professor at a prestigious university, the doctor is sick with the shortcomings of earthly ambition. Fortunately, he’s found a cure that promises to exalt his position, glorify his character, and supply all luxuries imaginable! The only cost is his eternal soul.
Quasimondo and Alverno College Department of Dance/Theatre present Christopher Marlowe’s Doctor Faustus, a classic tale dealing with the devil and the conception of faith. Embark on an outrageous globetrotting adventure with your guide, the demon Mephistopheles. Canoodle with demi-gorgons, mingle with Seven Deadly Sins, battle Alexander the Great, and meet the Pope! A generous treatment of horror, comedy, music and magic, this rapturous production is just what the doctor ordered. And believe us...it’s totally worth the cost.
