View theatre details
Mary Shelley's timeless novel about the creation of a Monster who is abandoned is brought to the stage by Emmy Award-winning writer (Sesame Street) and La MaMa ETC Series director (Poetry Electric) William Electric Black aka Ian Ellis James. Using 13 original songs and dynamic physical theater staging a la Andrei Serban and The Open Theatre, W. Electric Black brings Shelley’s horrifying ghost story back to life. Musical director William Wagner, who did a masterful arrangement of Mr. Black’s Romeo & Juliet: Tribal Rock Musical, teams up with William Electric Black to heighten the actual story with Into The Woods-like narration, at times, by Mary Shelley and a unique, Jim Henson-like imagineering by a 12-member ensemble.The physically-staged musical production, using four chairs, two platforms and an ensemble of 12 members depicts the book often using Mary Shelley’s own text to tell the Gothic tale of revenge after Victor’s reckless use of knowledge.
