"Fortunate Son: A Faust Myth"
The German legend of Faust centers on a successful (yet dissatisfied) scholar who makes a pact with the devil: his eternal soul in exchange for unlimited knowledge and worldly pleasures. "Fortunate Son: A Faust Myth" is a wild new adaptation of this timeless classic, remixed and imagined like never before.

Set in post-Vietnam New Orleans, "Fortunate Son" follows the journey of John Faust (a writer-turned-critic wracked with survivor's guilt) as he battles both his internal and external demons. Like all great adventures, his journey involves dance battles, heavy drinking, witchcraft, and uninvited blues music. It is a physical whirlwind born out of collective mythology, and it leans as heavily into heightened poetry as it does into lowbrow clown.

"Fortunate Son: A Faust Myth" was written by Cecilia Fairchild and directed by Coin & Ghost Artistic Director, Zach Davidson.

** Please note: this show includes mature content, and is intended for audiences 14 and up.



We wanted "Fortunate Son" to be accessible to EVERYONE. That's why we made tickets for opening weekend entirely pay-what-you-can.

Because of Brown Paper Ticket's current system, pay-what-you-can tickets cannot be reserved through their mobile site. In order to reserve your tickets for opening weekend, please visit our ticketing page on your desktop or laptop.

Thank you!
