New York premiere!

Closed 17 Apr 2011

At Wittenberg U. circa 1517, sparring professors Doctor Faustus and Reverend Martin Luther vie for the allegiance of their star pupil Prince Hamlet, who can’t decide on a major (go figure!).

Putting a zany spin on classic characters, the professors’ debate over faith and reason devolves into comic combat for the Prince who should be King.

An examination of reason versus faith at the illustrious university where Hamlet (questioning young Prince of Denmark) studies with Dr. Faustus (a man of appetites) and Martin Luther (a man of faith).
