Robert Fairchild stars in and choreographs the production.
The cast and company of Ensemble for the Romantic Century's off-Broadway premiere of Mary Shelley's Frankenstein, starring and choreographed by Robert Fairchild (An American in Paris), met with the press yesterday during rehearsals. The production will run December 21-January 7, with opening night on December 27 at Pershing Square Signature Center.
The cast includes Avey Noble, Krysty Swann, Mia Vallet, Peyton Lusk, Rocco Sisto, Shiv Ajay Pancholi-Parekh, and Paul Wesley. Donald T. Sanders will direct.
In Mary Shelley's Frankenstein, "The joys and perils of motherhood, the hovering shadow of infant mortality, and the sting of loneliness and rejection merge as Mary Shelley creates her masterwork, Frankenstein. The Creature that Dr. Frankenstein produces, an assemblage of disparate elements, coalesces into a monster with a human soul. His horrific appearance conceals the gentlest heart. Through no fault of his own, he is forced to descend into evil deeds. Excerpts from the 1818 edition of Frankenstein, music, and dance interwoven with Mary Shelley's letters and diaries create parallel narratives as both dramas unfold."
