Why See Frankenstein?
The Acclaimed Musical
Mary Shelley's classic is given new life by Write Act Repertory at St. Luke's Theatre. Eric B. Sirota's adaptation reimagines Frankenstein as a musical, but this is no campy horror version. Instead, Sirota wrestles with the existential questions of mortality and power that lie at the heart of novel. This Off-Broadway production has drawn plaudits from the critics, including Broadway World, which proclaimed it a "perfectly formed musical".
The story follows Doctor Frankenstein, who after the loss of his mother is determined to make death a thing of the past by creating an immortal, 'perfect being'. Once the creation is brought to life however, Doctor Frankenstein realises too late the terrible mistake he's made, as the monster escapes and plots revenge on the one who brought him into this world.

Even the most stalwart cynics may have trouble staying dry-eyed during this portrait of heroic hospitality under extraordinary pressure.
Until Jun 8, 2019
Cranston's wrenching performance stands on its own. In context, it's a terrifying reminder of how an all-too-human, anger-filled public figure, with access to a worldwide stage, can be mistaken for a god.
