Frankenstein

Frankenstein
Composer: Lowell Liebermann
Choreographer: Liam Scarlett

The Creature is back! The sold-out hit of 2017, Liam Scarlett’s Frankenstein bowed to roaring ovations. The Mercury News wrote "[Frankenstein] offers luscious performances, relentless drama, and spectacular set design and lighting.” Inspired by Mary Shelley's Gothic masterpiece, and set to Lowell Liebermann’s powerful score, this production features sumptuous costumes, and sets that will astonish.

Runtime: Approximately 2 hours and 50 minutes, including two 20-minute intermissions

Artist Profile

“[Frankenstein] offers luscious performances, relentless drama, and spectacular set design and lighting. Replete with delicious steampunk pyrotechnics, the design alone creates enough imaginative spectacle to become a leading character in its own right.”
