just a little something

A piece I wrote on Goethe’s Faust was published in Empty Mirror. Here’s a link; hope the humans of the internet enjoy.

  1. As a director myself (and a fan of Faust, drama and operas), this essay is most welcome. I went to a lecture last year with Jonathan Kalb on his book “Great Lengths: Seven Works of Marathon Theater”, which discusses Faust Parts I and II and its immense meta-theatricality. I hope to stage it someday.

    • Very glad that you enjoyed it! It’s such an incredible drama because of it’s ability to exist in writing and on stage, in my opinion. I would enjoy to see your representation if you ever get a chance.
