fall semester at Wittenberg U finds Hamlet Prince of Denmark class of 1517 with
an undeclared major. His philosophy professor Dr. John Faustus has finally
decided to marry his paramour, a former nun turned courtesan, and his theology
professor Martin Luther is dealing with the spiritual and medical consequences
of his outrage at abusive practices of the Church. Hysterically funny and
poignantly touching the play takes the fictional characters of Christopher
Marlowe’s Faustus and Shakespeare’s Hamlet and throws them together with the
renaissance religious reformer Martin Luther and places the three of them on
the campus of Wittenberg U to hash out their theories about the mysteries of
the universe, existence, women, love and God.
Bo Johnson as Dr. Faustus; Emmitt Morgans
as Martin Luther,
Kyle Conner as Hamlet and Jocelyn Ridgely as The Eternal Feminine.
Direction by Carol Zippel.
