A man and a devil will battle it out at the Kelly Barn as professional New York actor Glen Williamson performs Beat the Devil! Faust, the Whole Story. Sound Circle Eurythmy proundly presents the Anthropos production of this one-man play about love, sex, murder, myth, magic, war, waves and a devil out of his depths.
The production comes to Colorado after its award-winning appearance off Broadway at the United Solo Theatre Festival in New York. Audiences throughout North America, the UK, Ireland and Europe have praised this performance, which New York Arts editor Michael Miller called, “. . . brilliantly perceptive and witty. . .both a delight for those who know Goethe’s original and an appealing introduction for newcomers.”
Through drama and masterful storytelling, Williamson transforms Goethe’s entire 24-hour-long, two-hundred-year-old classic drama into a 90-minute sometimes humorous and always exhilarating battle for the soul of a man searching for truth, satisfaction . . . and a Goddess.
“Faust is the old legend of the guy who sold his soul to the Devil. But Goethe gave the bargain some surprising twists!” Williamson says. “Beat the Devil! is astonishingly pertinent to our time and our struggle to be human. It’s about a guy who craves knowledge, beauty and meaning. But,” Williamson adds, “when the devil tries to satisfy that craving, he finds out that’s not so easy.”
A short preview of this production (also known as The Tragedy of Mephistopheles) can be seen on YouTube.
