The Devil Returns! Randy Newman's Faust to Play Encores! for One Night Only This Summer

The Devil Returns! Randy Newman's Faust to Play Encores! for One Night Only This Summer
Randy Newman
'Randy Newman's Faust' was first seen in 1993.

Encores! Off-Center has made our jaws drop, in the best possible way, yet again. Randy Newman's Faust is to appear for one-night-only as part of its 2014 season on July 1. Grammy, Oscar and Emmy award winner Newman will play the Devil in the concert at the New York City Center’s Mainstage.

A darkly comic modern-day take on the Faust story, Randy Newman's Faust was first seen in 1993. In Newman's retelling, God and the Devil fight for the soul of Henry Faust, a student at the University of Notre Dame. The musical played at both San Diego’s La Jolia Playhouse and Chicago’s Goodman Theatre, as well as being released as an album.

No word yet on who will be joining Newman onstage, but along with the singer-songwriter as the Devil, the record featured James Taylor as Lord, Don Henley as Henry Faust, Elton John as Angel Rick, Linda Ronstadt as Margaret and Bonnie Raitt as Martha. What sort of pact would we have to make to see them all at the concert, because we'd consider it!?!
