Times-Dispatch Review of "Doctor Faustus"

Well, it's still incredibly hard to find the link to the Doctor Faustus review on the T-D website, but I'll link to it instead of the blatant copyright infringement of typing it complete.

Director Gives Doctor Faustus Energy

My favorite paragraph:

"...In the adaptation by the Atlanta Shakespeare Company's Jeff Watkins, and filtered through the sensibility of Richmond Shakespeare Theatre, it's a pared-down, souped-up showcase for two actors, a small menagerie of stuffed animals and some sock puppets. There's also a portable commode, Christmas lights and a nod to the movie Groundhog Day."

I'm just so glad she makes reference to the sock puppets and the commode.

    Congrats Andrew to you, your cast and production crew on a well deserved glowing review. I can't imagine doing that with two actors - good thing they're so young!

    Andrew, I found the review on the TD site...pretty well buried, but here's the link:

    Congratulations! Wish I could see it. Did Graham design the poster, in addition to becoming a "corkscrew"?

    Thanks, Brad! No, Graham did not design the posters; a local artist named Jamin Hoyle (whose name I may have misspelled) designed all three posters for this season, as well as the fourth Twelfth Night poster to be revealed soon. But Graham did paint the design oin the cover of Doctor Faustus' "Book of Knowledge."

    I videotaped the show last night and plan to film at least one more performance, so if you really want to see it I can burn you a DVD.
