    Theater: New York City Center - Stage II / 131 West 55th Street, New York, NY, 10036

    Synopsis: 

    Trouble brews in the hallowed halls of Wittenberg U. circa 1517. Sparring professors, Doctor Faustus and Reverend Martin Luther vie for the allegiance of their star pupil Prince Hamlet, who can't decide on a major (go figure!). While the prince ping-pongs between their contrary advice, the professors debate faith and reason in a zany spin on classic characters. Wittenberg brings the cleric who ignited the Protestant Reformation toe-to-toe with the philosopher whose lust for life just might lead him to sell his soul, in comic combat for the Prince who should be King.
