Navigate Up
by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, adapted by Heinz-Uwe Haus
directed by Heinz-Uwe Haus
Thompson Theatre - Roselle Center for the Arts
13-14 Season


​Restless for knowledge and power, Faust makes a deal with the devil – his soul in exchange for total knowledge, absolute power, and the ability to perform the black arts.  After sealing the pact with a drop of blood, Faust finds himself in the throes of a heady and hedonistic adventure of epic proportions.  Beautiful women, fantastical travel, extraordinary alchemy.  But at what cost?   Combining the highest level of theatricality with challenging and thought provoking ideas, the REP brings this landmark in world literature to vivid and spectacular life with magic, monsters, electrifying effects, and a host of devilish delights.
