Classic Stage Company's production starring Chris Noth, about a man who sells his soul to the devil for power, experience, pleasure and knowledge. More…
A pact with the devil brings boundless knowledge and endless gratification. There's just one little catch…Classic Stage Company tackles Christopher Marlowe’s ever-irreverent 'Doctor Faustus,' which remains as ahead of its time today as it was when it first scandalized audiences some four hundred years ago.
See it if you just want to gaze at Noth. DF was a mess. Nothing worked. A misguided production from start to finish that wasted talent and money.
Don't see it if you don't have to. The play's premise is intriguing (DF sells his soul to the devil) but yields no riches in this production.
See it if you are a fan of any of the casts and you do not mind a slightly different interpretation of a classic play.
Don't see it if prefer plays performed as intended or if you are not a fan of Faustus. l
See it if You really like Chris Noth. I found it boring, slow and could not wait for it to end. Several people never came back after intermission.
Don't see it if You have things to do. Also totally unnecessary nudity. I am cool with nudity but it is not always necessary or relevant to the story.

Don't see it if You can follow a complicated and thoughtful plot.
See it if you love philosophy and the typical story about selling your soul to the devil. Watch the version with Arthur Darvill at the Globe.
Don't see it if you're easily confused by Shakespeare-type language. Though Shakespeare didn't write it, it's still a very old play.
See it if Great acting and writing in a play as relevant today as it was hundreds of years ago when it was first produced.
Don't see it if don't view theatre as a thinking person's game or want to flex your intellect to keep up with an intricate plot.
See it if You love theatre that really engages an audience and uses a lot of movement/animal work and you like to be kept on your toes
