FRANKENSTEIN A New Musical: A Visually Dazzling New Twist
at Player’s Theatre.
October 30, 2016 Review by Roger Gonzalez
BeBold! Productions’ new Off Broadway musical, “Frankenstein a new Musical,” now playing at The Players Theatre on MacDougal Street in the village is a surprisingly visually stimulating play that takes a fresh new twist on the Mary Shelley classic and offers up an entertaining evening of theatre.
To do so much with so little space in this classic, but far from modern space, is a testament to creativity and ingenuity. If theatre is a feast of the senses, then the lighting and sound (and beautiful music and score) alone is worth the price of admission. Illusion consultant Max Darwin, Scenic designers Michelle Lynch and Elizabeth Chaney, and Lighting Designer Ali Hall all deserve kudos and some award. Combined they take a relatively small space and give it life, depth, color, emotion and texture comparable to something you might see in a big budget production. The costumes and makeup are equally exceptional and the Monster is great fun to watch. If I were him, I walk the streets late at night just for the fun of it! How cool was this show!
