BWW Review: Theatre UCF's YOUNG FRANKENSTEIN Shatters Lofty Expectations
by Matt Tamanini - Oct 26, 2016

Last week, I wrote an article looking at why Central Florida's collegiate theatre programs, and in particular Theatre UCF, consistently produce content at or above the level of local professional theatres.

So, needless to say, as I walked into the theater, my expectations were already exceptionally high. Fortunately for me, and everyone else at the sold-out performance, this incredibly talented cast not only met those expectations, but shattered them. (more...)
