"Frankenstein". The name alone conjures up so many images; but if you're only familiar with the Boris Karloff film, then you're in for a treat as Theatrical Arts brings Mary Shelley's classic novel to life on stage. Everyone knows the story: A scientist obsessed with creating life instead creates a monster. While it is a gothic thriller, Shelley's novel is also much richer than the cottage industry it spawned. A passionate romance and a cautionary tale, "Frankenstein" touches on the themes of scientific responsibility and what it means to be human -- themes that inspire some to believe the work is a critique of the Industrial Revolution.
