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).
