Mary Shelley's classic brought back to life

Why See Frankenstein?


Frankenstein Reimagined

Robert Kauzlaric and Paul S. Holmquist present a brand new adaptation of Mary Shelley's horror classic. Doctor Frankenstein is replaced by Victoria, a woman who retreats into the darkest corner of her mind when she loses somebody close to her. She draws on her deep despair to create a terrible monster, but she has no idea at the havoc it will reap.

This isn't the first time that Kauzlaric and Holmquist have given a classic work a new spin. In 2007 lifeline staged their adaptation of the Island of Dr. Moreau, which transformed H G Wells tale into an ambitiously staged, psychedelic thriller, and went on to win the Non-equity Jeff Award for Best Play.

This is one time where all the hype and hoopla is not only justified, but doesn't come close to suggesting the grandeur of the work on stage. A Triumph.
