Attention avant-garde theater enthusiasts: Gertrude Stein's seminal libretto Doctor Faustus Lights the Lights is being staged by San Diego State University's School of Theatre, Television and Film. A reimagining of the classic Faust myth, the modernist play asks a simple question: "Would you sell your soul ...?" If the thought of an avant-garde performance scares you, the production is a collaboration with the Schools of Music and Dance and Art and Design that features a variety of forms, including dance, moving image, music, visual art, and traditional theater. So whether you're a Stein expert or new to the world of experimental performance art, there's something for everybody to enjoy, no Faustian deal necessary.
This production is not appropriate for children under age 10.
