Faustus Presented by WPA Federal Theater Division

  • $ 19.99


Poster for Federal Theatre Project presentation of "Faustus" by Christopher Marlowe at Maxine Elliott's Theatre, 109 West 39th Street, NYC, showing Death as a skeleton beating a drum; an hourglass at his feet. In the depression of the 1930's a federal stimulus stimulus program was created, the WPA. The Works Projects Administration (WPA) funded theaters, art and inspired lots of classic reminders of a wounded USA struggling colorfully to come out of the Depression.
