Doctor Faustus

A pact with the devil brings boundless knowledge and endless gratification. There’s just one little catch… Join Chris Noth (“Law & Order,” “Sex and the City,” “The Good Wife”) as he teams up with director Andrei Belgrader (The Cherry Orchard, Waiting for Godot, Scapin) to tackle 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.


ALL THAT HEAVEN WON’T ALLOW. A moral (or rather amoral) pageant with fine comic actors. Mr. Noth undertakes this challenging role, and is a fine actor with a NATURAL MAGNETISM.” – The New York Times


Classic Stage Company’s FRISKY PRODUCTION is easy to take. No deadly sin in that. Noth, a veteran theater actor, is at home on stage. He’s got a twinkle in his eye. The ace Zach Grenier brings a zesty relish to every line.” – The New York Daily News


AN ARTFUL, INTIMATE, PARED-DOWN PRODUCTION of Christopher Marlowe’s morality play.” – Time Out New York


A BRAZEN UP-YOURS TO CONVENTION. I’d be a damned liar if I said I was ever bored by a moment of it.– Entertainment Weekly


LAUGH-OUT-LOUD ACCESSIBLE to 21st century audiences. Yet it remains faithful to Marlowe’s intention. A devil-may-care twist on a classic.– Newsday
