FRANKENSTEIN, is a new musical, (book, music and lyrics by Eric B. Sirota) based on Mary Shelley's novel, and directed by Clint Hromsco. It is a two-act sweeping, romantic musical about the human need for love and companionship. Published in 1818, Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein is in its bicentennial year, and this musical honors its source material. Having lost his mother at a young age, Victor Frankenstein seeks to end human mortality and arrogantly enters territory beyond his control. While he enjoys unconditional love from Elizabeth, Victor grants none to his creation.
