Theater wizard Ping Chong and Phantom Limb’s Erik Sanko and Jessica Grindstaff join forces in The Devil You Know, a tantalizing tale of desperate deals, second chances and democracy’s eternal promise of renewal. The classic American Faust fable, The Devil and Daniel Webster, is transformed with the help of dozens of finely-crafted marionettes, dazzling video projections, an original score by Sanko, and ingenious revolving stages. A haunting meditation on lost souls and fool’s gold, The Devil You Know is theater magic as only Ping Chong and Phantom Limb can conjure it. Photo Credit: Scott Irvine
