From Frankenstein; or, The Modern Prometheus by Mary Shelley
Any time a theatre company undertakes a world premiere, much less one commissioned, kudos is warranted for the risks undertaken. While this new offering of Frankenstein has some issues mainly of script and some of direction (notably in Act Two), the innovative technical and production aspects are wonderful to experience and make the evening’s outing to City Lights overall a worthwhile adventure.
