Frankenstein: a new musical, based on Mary Shelley’s classic novel, is a two-act sweeping, romantic musical about the human need for love and companionship.
Having lost his mother at a young age, Victor Frankenstein seeks to end man’s mortality and arrogantly enters territory beyond his control. While he enjoys unconditional love from Elizabeth, he grants none to his creation. Published in 1818, Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein is now entering its bicentennial year, and this musical honors that source material.
Local Theatre NY described its “soaring new score” with “sincerely clever narrative devices…a musical love letter true to its source material . . . infused with enough emotion to send chills down the spine . . .”
“Sirota…imbues his show with the serious philosophical underpinnings of Shelley’s original.” – Off Off On Line
