Celebrating 50 years of Exploring Spirituality, Community and the Arts —-
130 E. Juneau Avenue, Milwaukee, WI 53202
The 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.
Featuring:
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.

This exciting play reveals the man beneath the cowl.  Here, then is Luther the man, monk and mind in all its doubts, honesty and clarity of purpose lifting his book in his hand and saying, “Here I stand.”
“Makes the theatre ten feet tall.” ~ The New York Post
“A work of power and integrity.” ~ The New York Daily News
