FRANKENSTEIN Off-Broadway Celebrates 2 Years Continuously Running At St. Luke's Theatre

FRANKENSTEIN, the Off-Broadway musical at St. Luke's Theatre opened in October 2017 and heads into its third Halloween season after recently celebrating its 2nd full year running this week. Frankenstein plays Tuesdays at 7 PM at St. Luke's Theatre. It is neither a comedy nor a parody, but rather an adaptation of Mary Shelley's 200 year old chilling novel, and especially appropriate for this season.

With book, music and lyrics by Eric B. Sirota, FRANKENSTEIN is directed by Clint Hromsco and produced by John Lant, Write Act Repertory and Tamra Pica.

Tickets through January 28, 2020 on sale now. For performances on Tuesday at 7 PM, and there will also be two matinee performances at 11 AM on Wednesdays, November 20 & December 18.

FRANKENSTEIN, is a two-act sweeping, romantic musical about the human need for love and companionship. Published in 1818, Mary Shelley's Frankenstein has recently celebrated its bicentennial and this musical honors its source material as a contemporary work of musical theatre. 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. For more info, please visit TheFrankensteinMusical.com
