Detailed Information:

NEW YORK, January 27 — To update one of its perennially popular productions and share it with a wider audience, Czechoslovak-American Marionette Theatre (CAMT) will re-imagine its “Johannes Dokchtor Faust, a Petrifying Puppet Comedye,” translated and directed by Vit Horejs, March 21 to April 7 at Theater for the New City, 155 First Ave., Manhattan. This classic of the Czech marionette repertoire is traditionally used to make fun of a king or a local mayor. The company’s adaptation was initially developed in 1990 and its topical references will be updated to current times.

The staging incorporates age-old technical tricks of Czech puppetry, including fire and thunder, hellish gargoyles and underwater creatures. The script is the first definitive American translation of the classic Czech text by the author known today only as “A.B.” The production was developed by Czechoslovak-American Marionette Theater between 1991 and 1994 and it became a favorite and definitive part of its repertoire.
