Drug use, roil Says

By JOHN CONRON
The Eastern Michigan Univer-
sity Players' "Doctor Faustus" at
Quirk Auditorium, Ypsilanti, is a
disappointing job, but worth see-
ing nonetheless: better a flawed
production of Marlowe than a
perfect one of, say, Pinero or Bar-
rie or Galsworthy.
Faustus. is the incarnate alter-
ego of all of us who can imagine
having power but don't have it and
never" will-born of "parents base
of stock," hungry enough to suc-
ceed in',the academic world, dis-
enchanted with the great rift be-
tweenknowledge and power., In
the beginning we are to' half-be-
lieve, or find it difficult to disbe-
lieve, Mephistophilis when he says:
Why, Faustus,
Thinkest thou heaven is :such
a glorious thing?
I tell thee, 'tis not half so
fair as thou,
Or any man that breathes on
earth.
But finally to believe 'that, and
so to sign the pact with Mephisto-
philis, you have to have let con-
science and belief succumb to your
vision of power, - _a familiar
enough spectacle in our times.
'Hind of Man'
Faustus envisions power as vast
as "the mind of man." That turns
out to be a ;chance to kick the
Pope, get fresh grapes in winter
and take Helen for, a night. Each
:of the.se is a bigger sell-out for.
.ess gain, a distraction from the
* despair- . which is Faustus' only
chance for redemption.
, A 'human'diaden yields a fool,
(a clown who can't see himself as
a clown--it's demanding, you
know) yields a lost soul. That's the
just progression of this equation;
th. emerciful progression is its re-
-verse. It is a -hard thing to realize
that you need mercy: it means
giving up foreign investment, elec-
tric toothbrushes, pot ...
All of this is to suggest that
Marlowe's "Doctor F a u s t u s"
"speaks to our condition." We're
not, spectators to it, we're partici-
pators. We're liable to see through
the illusion on stage-to see that
-the good angel: is wearing a turtle-
neck, that the "wine jug" is a
spray-painted plastic Chlorox bot-
$e, that "St. Jerome's Bible" is a
spray-painted scrapbook and Me-
phistophils' "conjure book" a felt-
covered scrapbook.
Cast
We're liable to do this without
helping ourselves, unless-unless
Faustus': incarnation measures up,
and unless Mephistophilis' Incar-
- nation makes us for a while in-
decisive - as to- whether the pact
was was worthwhile. Joseph Del
Giudice plays a convincing Me-
phistopliilis, bit Richard Wors,
wilk's_ Fausttis doesn't measure up.
The . problem is more one, of
casting than of acting: Worswick
looks his age-19 or 20, in de-
,vastating incongruity to .,the
"scholar of thirty years" he plays.
Ife strains his tenor voice in the
lower register trying for resonance
enough to deliver Marlowe's mag-
.nificet blank verse.

concert halls in the country, Hill's
"intimacy belies its size," Rector
said. After his first performance
there in 1963, New York Phil-
harmonic c o n d u c t o r Leonard
Bernstein praised that intimacy.
According to Rector, Bernstein
said he understood why the late
Boston Symphony conductor Serge
Koussivitsky considered Hill one
of his favorite houses-he could
hear the audience applaud.r
. Hill does not serve as a proving
ground for new performers, Rector
-said. "It is regarded as a prestige
date by performers, a prime date
in their seasons," he added.
Ann Arbor audiences are known
to be highly discriminating. "Audi-
ences are responsive," Rector said.
"When performers are good, they
respond well."
While an artist who turns in a
mediocre performance may be
lucky to escape with polite ap-
plause, the audiences - show their
appreciation for an outstanding
job. After attending the premiere
of his latest work "Inscapes" per-
formed by' Bernstein and the Phil-
harmonic at Hill this fall, Amer-
ican composer Aaron Copland was
so pleased with the audience re-
sponse that, reported Rector, he
said, "I want all my premieres to'
take place in Ann Arbor."
In its 55 years of existence, Hill
has undergone only one major
revision. In 1948, new seating was
installed, reducing the capacity by
some 400 seats. At the same time,,
the old basket lights over the
'stage were replaced by modern
lighting. Since then, the only re-'
vision 'has been the construction
of a false proscenium and grand
drape so Hill can be used for
opera and stage productions.
Although there have been sev-
eral studies of possible major re-'
visions, particularly for expansion
of Hill's cramped backstage facil-
ities, no plans are currently in the
works.
