Frankenstein is the world's most iconic Gothic nightmare. It started on a cold, wet night in 1816, when Mary Shelley first dreamed of a "hideous phantasm," a man patched together from the parts of other men. And for 200 years, that same Creature has continued to lurch and lumber through countless more night-terrors, not to mention books, plays and movies -- his bone-chilling step never halting in two centuries. Now that "phantasm," and the monster who created him, mounts the stage in a reimagining from the Maryland Ensemble Theatre. If you're looking for some theatrical chills this Halloween season, this visually, viscerally and emotionally stunning experience in storytelling may be just the ghoulish delight you seek.
This show is recommended for ages 13 and older.
