This blog sometimes becomes my confessional (and I am neither catholic nor religiously affiliated)....
I have never read Mary Shelly's book, Frankenstein. And I read a lot.
Nor have I seen a movie or play.
My only reference to this whole affair is the Mel Brooks' classically funny movie, Young Frankenstein.
So, thank goodness once again for the Bradley Playhouse in Putnam, CT.
From the Bradley's website:
Based on the novel by Mary Shelly, Frankenstein tells the story of Victor Frankenstein who creates a grotesque creature in an unorthodox scientific experiment. Often considered one of the earliest examples of science fiction, it is one of the world’s most celebrated horror stories.
Frankenstein is now playing at the Bradley, Friday-Saturday-Sunday this weekend and next.
You can bet my jaw will be dropping in awe of the performers and performance.
You can also bet that I will be reading the book shortly thereafter.
Enjoy the season with local theater!
