Monday, February 25, 2019
Seats Available To The Public!
The show is based on the first true science fiction novel, FRANKENSTEIN: The Modern Prometheus, written over two centuries ago in 1818 by Mary Shelley. Victor Frankenstein is a Swiss scientist with a mission to create an artificial human. Without considering the consequences, he succeeds with terrifying results. Two hundred years later, FRANKENSTEIN still poses a myriad of ethical questions.
