FAUST (go down with all the re$t)

How much is a soul worth? Based on Goethe's most celebrated work, ERA’s experimental musical, FAUST (go down with all the re$t), is a post-modern, rock-opera-adaptation in which Heaven is the bank and everyone prays to the Almighty Dollar.  

 

FAUST (go down with all the re$t) is a full-length theatrical production created by ERA’s ensemble of theatre artists with text from Goethe’s Faust, Mikhail Bulgakov’s The Master and Margarita, and contemporary television game shows. The script was created by the ensemble. The music was created by Kid Scientist.

 

Join us for this capitali$t tragedy with music, dancing, and drinking!
