About The Alchemist

London. 1610. It’s plague time, again.

When a wealthy gentleman flees to the country, his trusted servant opens his house to a pair of con artists and sets up a den of criminal capitalism. Claiming alchemical powers, the quick-witted trio fleece an onslaught of greedy sheep with their virtuosic ability to improvise amidst increasingly frantic comings and goings. It’s comic gold with dupes, double-dupes, duels, disguises, and a lucky flea named “Lewis”.

This new version of the rowdy comedy classic is adapted by Jeffrey Hatcher and directed by Jesse Berger – the pair that created Red Bull Theater’s production of the hit comedy The Government Inspector.

This limited Off-Broadway engagement features Nathan Christopher, Stephen DeRosa, Carson Elrod, Manoel Felciano, Teresa Avia Lim, Jacob Ming-Trent, Louis Mustillo, Reg Rogers, Jennifer Sánchez, and Allen Tedder. Designs are by Alexis Distler (scenery), Tilly Grimes (costumes), Cha See (lighting), and Greg Pliska (original music & sound).

Jonson's very funny updated plague-era farce

See it if You enjoy classical plays, even updated, farce, superb acting, sets, costumes, blocking, and ribald fun. Prudes need not apply.

Don’t see it if only modern plays interest you. Frankly offers a great route back into the theater after 1 1/2 yrs of dark stages. Welcome back.

Clever, Entertaining, Great acting, Funny, Great staging

See it if you like comedy with a that cast plays multiple parts in a non-stop romp of besting. Excellent set with appropriate Red Bull updating.

Don’t see it if you do not like silly theater - here some of the acting and the dialogue border on inappropriate today, but this is a 17th Century play!

Delightful, Funny, Great staging, Great acting

See it if The staging is excellent. The costumes are gorgeous. The story is humor-laden. The acting is top-notch.

Don’t see it if actors playing multiple roles confuse you; not always easy to understand.
