  • Faustus By David Mamet Having put his personal stamp on the contemporary theater, David Mamet now performs the supremely audacious feat of reinventing the theater of the past He does so by telling his own ingenious and eerily moving version of the tragedy of Dr Faustus.Mamet s Faustus like Marlowe s and Goethe s before him is a philosopher whose life s work has been the pursuit of the secretHaving put his personal stamp on the contemporary theater, David Mamet now performs the supremely audacious feat of reinventing the theater of the past He does so by telling his own ingenious and eerily moving version of the tragedy of Dr Faustus.Mamet s Faustus like Marlowe s and Goethe s before him is a philosopher whose life s work has been the pursuit of the secret engine of the world He is also the distracted father of a small, adoring son Out of the clash between love and intellect and the fatal operation of Faustus pride, Mamet fashions a work that is at once caustic and heart wrenching and whose resplendent language marries metaphysics to conman s patter A meditation on reason and folly, fathers and sons, and a breathtaking display of magic both literal and theatrical, Faustus is a triumph.

    Very good play on the orginal Faustus It uses the tricks that Mamet loves It has a hidden unread book, an idea that we sort of understand and imagine its implcations Faustus makes his choices and has the same aims as the orginal Fautus but Mamet looks at the implciation of choice and decision for Faust in a new way I really like the magic and staging idea in the play, the idea that magic may be real or a trick in the play and never clear which one for great swaths of the play make it suspenseful [...]

    World premiere 2 28 2004 at The Magic Theatre, San Francisco This is a strange update on the classic Dr Faustus story I m not sure I ll fully appreciate until unless I reread Marlowe s version Mamet s Faustus seems less aware than Marlowe s In the end he seems to both win and lose he loses his family but claims victory over Magus I m not sure I entirely understood what happened I need to read it again, if I can stand all the weird and grammatically incorrect commas that drove me nuts I realize M [...]

    This was honestly a surprise to me I ve never been that involved with David Mamet s works, but I stumbled across Faustus in my library and decided what the hell I ve got time to read an extra play, and I m honestly glad I did.You probably already know I don t like Doctor Faustus by Marlowe, which is strange, because it s got a pretty big reputation as one of the greatest plays but I felt like the plot didn t go anywhere in the later acts of the play Faustus by Mamet is much different It s an in [...]

    I wasn t sold on this play in the early stages because the dialogue seemed a bit odd I mean, a modern playwright is not necessarily a master of quais renaissance dialogue But by about 1 3 of the way through the play was really reaching me One innovation to the Faust legend as I know it that is, through Marlowe, not Goethe is the creation of a Faustus family, whom Faustus gets damned to hell because he is tricked into swearing a false oath In Marlowe s play, Faustus sells his own soul, which I th [...]

    First, I m not a playwright, or much of a reader of plays I grabbed this because I enjoyed Oleanna, and was curious about the story of Faustus I don t know how this play was received, but I do know I found it completely brilliant The language felt archaic, but still fresh, to wit Who am I to balk another of his freak I knew a villain, said he lived to count the stars Each darkness found him, with his pen and ledger, out of the house, happy as a grig The structure is lovely the two acts echo one [...]

    A contemporary retelling of the Faustus story from David Mamet, without his signature language While overwritten and pretentious, the play ended up gripping me in its story, mainly for the portrait of the devil as a common magician illusionist The BBC put together a first rate audio play, which you can download from their website.

    Ya know what I m not gonna write a review If Mamet can t show up to write this play, I ain t a gonna show up to review it.
