Watch Randy Newman Perform His Musical Version of Faust With Laura Osnes and Michael Cerveris

The cast of the City Center Encores! Off-Center production also featured Isaiah Johnson, Tony Vincent, and more.

New York City Center's second Encores! Off-Center production of the season was a one-night concert version of singer-songwriter Randy Newman's Faust — inspired by Goethe's masterpiece. In Newman's updated version, which premiered in 1995 at the La Jolla Playhouse, a young Notre Dame freshman is caught in the middle of a bet between the Lord and the Devil.

The Off-Center performance's cast featured Michael Cerveris, Laura Osnes, Isaiah Johnson, Vonda Shepard, Brooklyn Shuck, and Tony Vincent, with Newman starring as the Devil. Take a look at TheaterMania's footage of the evening to see the cast perform Newman tunes such as "Little Island," "Gainesville," and "Glory Train" on the New York stage.
