Frankenstein The Musical
Frankenstein A New Musical AKA Frankenstein The Musical (but not Young Frankenstein!) is a serious-minded musical based on Mary Shelley's 19th-century novel about playing God by bringing the dead back to life. It has music by composer Mark Baron and book and lyrics by Jeffrey Jackson, directed by Ray Buffer.
With earnest ballads and soaring ensemble numbers, this compelling new musical brings the suspense and romance of the classic tale to life in a uniquely faithful, yet thoroughly innovative adaptation of Mary Shelley's original novel. In his quest to discover the secret of life, Victor Frankenstein, a brilliant young scientist, creates a human of his own design that turns out to instead be a horrifying beast. This is no "Hollywood monster," but a flesh-and-blood man who, while terrifying in appearance, grows to become articulate, cunning, and thirsting for revenge upon the creator who abandoned him. A tragic love story and exploration of humanity, Frankenstein, A New Musical breathes new life into the world-renowned story of man and creator pitted against one another in epic battle.
"...brings the classic story thrillingly to life."
