Since then, it has often been presented in England and elsewhere. Orson Welles’ production of 1937, which ran for six months in New York, is now generally regarded as one of the landmarks of the twentieth-century American theatre. Following it, there have been three Old Vic productions-the last of them opening at the Edinburgh Festival of 1961-and the play has twice appeared in the programme of the Shakespeare Memorial Theatre, Stratford. Provincial and touring companies and amateur dramatic societies have revived it. The B.B.C. has broadcast more than a dozen productions of it, either on sound radio or on television. Doctor Faustus is today, in fact, one of the most frequently performed of plays by contemporaries of Shakespeare.
