Frankenstein: A New Musical

In the Summer of 2011 I was selected to play the lead role of Victor Frankenstein in the Delta Xi production of Frankenstein: A New Musical. It was the premiere performance of Frankenstein in this region. Thois was my first lead role, and opened me up to all sorts of other oppertunities and possibilities. The production seemed constantly plagued by bad luck, with people dropping out of the cast left and right, pianists who couldn't play the score and other problems, but in the end, the cast really pulled it together and made it work. Here are the details:

With earnest ballads and soaring ensemble numbers, this compelling new musical brings the suspense and romance of the classic tale to life in a uniquely faithful, yet thoroughly innovative adaptation of Mary Shelley's original novel. In his quest to discover the secret of life, Victor Frankenstein, a brilliant young scientist, creates a human of his own design that turns out to instead be a horrifying beast. This is no "Hollywood monster," but a flesh-and-blood man who, while terrifying in appearance, grows to become articulate, cunning, and thirsting for revenge upon the creator who abandoned him. A tragic love story and exploration of humanity, Frankenstein, A New Musical breathes new life into the world-renowned story of man and creator pitted against one another in epic battle.
