A strange and terrifying story will be confessed to the brave few who risk an evening with a mysterious, tortured creature and its famed creator. Previously a sold out hit at Philadelphia's Mutter Museum, this solo performance of Mary Shelley's nightmare classic is coming to the Rosenbach for one chilling night only, followed by a talkback after the show. Seating is limited; advance registration is strongly recommended.
“A Frankenstein with the Hollywood additions scraped off, one that began in the Arctic wastes, revealed the self-deluded nature of Victor’s ambitions, and presented the Creature with horror and unalloyed sympathy. I cannot be the only person to leave the evening determined to reread Mary Shelley’s masterpiece as soon as possible... a wonderfully gothic evening.”
