Editors Note: This is Lorraine’s first Interview and the first interview with our Blue Snow Ball Mics. Expect very cool things from our new equipment.
Synetic Theatre’s powerful production of Faust has successfully transferred from the Rosslyn Spectrum where it opened in April to the Family Theatre at the Kennedy Center where it plays for three weeks only, closing Sunday, June 18th. We talked backstage with director Paata Tsikurishvili , and performers Irina Tsikurishvili, ( Gretchen, and also the company’s Helen Hayes award winning choreographer), Greg Marzullo (Faust), Dan Istrate (Mephiso) and ensemble member Meghan Grady.
The discussion begins with a description of the set, the story of Faust as told by Goethe and of the actual Faust who practiced alchemy, Greg and Dan treat us to a brief scene between Faust and Mephisto, followed by a lively description of the role of art, beauty and nudity in theatre.
This interview is very good! I think the love of theatre comes through in the words and music of this great company, A must listen!
