Producing Artistic Director John Lant, Write Act Repertory and Tamra Pica present the world premiere of FRANKENSTEIN, a new musical based on Mary Shelley's novel, about the human need for love and companionship, with book, music and lyrics by Eric B. Sirota and directed by Clint Hromsco. The show opens tonight, October 9th, and runs through December 18 at St. Luke's Theatre (308 West 46th Street, between 8th and 9th avenues).

Based on Mary Shelley's classic novel, FRANKENSTEIN is a two-act sweeping, romantic musical that honors its source material. Having lost his mother at a young age, Victor Frankenstein seeks to end man's mortality and arrogantly enters territory beyond his control. While he enjoys unconditional love from Elizabeth, he grants none to his creation.
Music direction and arrangements are by Anessa Marie, lighting design by Maarten Cornelis, set design by Mattew Imhoff, sound design by Liz Howell and costume design Jennifer Anderson. Casting by Tamra Pica Casting.
Eric B. Sirota (Book, Music and Lyrics) is a composer and playwright, as well as an established research scientist and fellow of the American Physical Society, with a PhD in Physics from Harvard and over 90 highly cited publications and 20 patents. Under the title Day of Wrath, Frankenstein was an Official Selection of the New York Musical Festival's Reading Series in 2015 and also received a reading as part of the Emerging Artists Theatre New Work Series. Another one of his musicals, Your Name On My Lips, an original love story, played at Theater for the New City in March 2017.
