I expected modern interpretation of Dr.Faustus,but this was classic version. A little bit too much for me. We left after first act. Sorry... I was just falling asleep , same about my husband. But the actors did great job! It is a very difficult play.

Fantastic staging with combination of dramatic manipulation of space and audio visual. Excellant acting.

Only detraction is that sometimes the volume of dramatic effects overwhelms the actors lines.

The preview showed promise but it was far from fully baked.
