Mary Shelley’s 1818 classic horror novel gets a 21st-century steam punk update in Frankenstein, A New Musical, described as being more faithful to Shelley’s dark and romantic novel than any other version of Frankenstein. Promising scientist Victor Frankenstein plays God by daring to create life — only to turn his back on his monstrous creation, setting off a cycle of violence. The musical captures a tragic love story and a battle between father and son. An exploration of desire, obsession and ambition run rampant, Frankenstein, A New Musicalmakes its Los Angeles debut at the Flight Theater at the Complex. Taken from the website.

But the show’s producer unexpectedly shows up, outraged that the Emcee has subverted her historically accurate drama of the romance between a prince and princess, into an “almost true” musical romp.

It is 1964, a time of movement and change, but Catholic school principal Sister Aloysius values a stern hand over progressive education. When evidence points to an inappropriate relationship between Father Flynn and the school’s first black student, she begins a crusade to rid the church of Father Flynn. John Patrick Shanley’s riveting psychological drama examines the fine line between what seems certain and ambiguity, between conviction and doubt. Taken from the website

Written during his “dark decade” in the late ’60s, metaphorical and taboo themes of race, gender and human survival are surprisingly current.Taken from the website
