"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.
