Beat the Devil! (Faust, the Whole Story)

An exhilarating romp through Goethes theatrical masterpiece about heaven, hell and a battle for the soul of a man searching for truth, satisfaction . . . and a Goddess.

Glen Williamson began telling the whole story of Goethes Faust (under the title The Tragedy of Mephistopheles) in 1999, at the request of the New York Branch of the Anthroposophical Society, in honor of the 250th anniversary of Goethes birth. This solo epic-storytelling performance has appeared throughout North America and Britain and in Europe. Glen continues to perform Beat the Devil!, touring widely, and is available to perform it in theaters, churches, schools and universities
