About Wittenberg

Set during late October of 1517 in what is now Germany, this smart, sprightly, and audacious battle of wits features university colleagues Dr. Faustus (a man of appetites), Martin Luther (a man of faith), and their student Hamlet, the Prince of Denmark (a youth struggling not only with his beliefs but also with his tennis game). Playwright David Davalos brings us the story behind the stories in a witty, charming and accessible exploration of reason versus faith.

Wittenberg received its world premiere at Arden Theatre Company in Philadelphia in 2008 and has since been produced at Orlando Shakespeare Theater, Rep Stage in Columbia, Maryland, and the Pearl Theater in New York, among others. The New York Times called Wittenberg “a crackling good bit of entertainment” and said, “Hilarity, thy name is ‘Wittenberg.’ The NY Post declared it “a delightful romp that’s as accessible as it is thought-provoking,” and The Huffington Post remarked, “’To be or not to be’ never sounded so entertaining.”

Director David A. Miller, who has previously directed Gutenberg! The Musical! and Below the Belt for Amphibian, will lead an ensemble cast that includes Jay Duffer as Martin Luther, Brandon J. Murphy as Faustus, Jule Nelson-Duac as The Eternal Feminine, and Robert James Walsh as Hamlet.
