Frankenstein: The Musical

Playbill News: you dream, a New Musical, Opens Its Eyes at NY Musical Theatre Fest Sept. 23-Oct. 2
First seen in Toronto and Hamilton, Ontario, the musical is playing at the New York Musical Theatre Festival this fall. I wonder how the prose will be rendered? What will the proto-cyborg Monster look like? What an astonishingly long life this creature has had in our imaginations!

"Cursed, cursed creator! Why did I live? Why, in that instant, did I not extinguish the spark of existence which you had so wantonly bestowed? I know not; despair had not yet taken possession of me; my feelings were those of rage and revenge. I could with pleasure have destroyed the cottage and its inhabitants and have glutted myself with their shrieks and misery."
