Doctor Faustus by Quintessence Theater

Doctor Faustus by Christopher Marlowe in Sedgewick Theater, March 30 through April 24, 2016

From the theater's website:

Doctor Faustus is a world renowned scholar, celebrated for his mastery of all the academic disciplines. Frustrated by the intangible power of his learning, impatient with the limits of the natural sciences and fueled by the hubris of his genius, Faustus breaks his university’s rules and turns his study to black magic. Conjuring the devil, Faustus sells his soul for 24 years on earth with infinite knowledge and requests the devil’s servant Mephistopheles as his personal assistant. In this dark comedy, Christopher Marlowe’s epic adventure follows Faustus through space and time to test the limits of the human mind when it knows all, but lacks a soul.
