WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

From the director of the Tony Award-winning Rent, Monster is a highly charged and boldly theatrical re-telling of the Frankenstein myth. Starring Jake Weber (The Cell, U-571) and Michael Pitt (TV?s Dawson?s Creek, the film Hedwig and the Angry Inch), Monster reveals the roiling psycho-sexual dynamics beneath the Gothic surface of Mary Shelley?s classic novel. A vessel churns slowly through the Arctic as it sails north for the Pole. Scanning the horizon, the ship's Captain is stunned to spot a lone figure on a distant ice floe: Victor Frankenstein, inventor, scientist, student of the occult. The story he tells - of a quest for scientific glory, of the alchemy of life and death, of creativity leading to destruction - is strange enough. But when he describes stitching together a man from cadavar parts then jolting him to life with electricity, his tale veers into territory as breathtaking and dangerous as the arctic ice itself. The World Premiere of Monster is adapted by Neal Bell from the novel Frankenstein, and directed by Michael Greif (Rent). There are no matinee performances on February 2 or 9. NOTE: This production contains nudity and is not recommended for children under 18. There are no on-line ticket sales available for the January 27 performance.
