Faust: A Love Story

Wednesdays–Fridays (7:30pm)

Saturdays (2 & 7:30pm)

Sundays (3pm)


BAM Harvey Theater

651 Fulton St





Thrilling aerial action and music by Nick Cave and Warren Ellis are just a couple reasons the Vesturport's reinvention of Goethe's classic tale is high on our list of productions to check out this season. A member of BAM's Next Wave Festival class of 2012, Faust: A Love Story is set in a nursing home around the holidays. Johann, an aging once-famous actor, has always wanted to play Faust, but as the saying goes, be careful what you wish for. Known for its unique and wildly inventive shows, Vesturport is an award-winning Icelandic theatre and film company that has been to BAM on two other occasions. And just like any amazing deal (involving the devil or not), this production is only around for a limited time.
