In celebration of the 200th Anniversary of the first publishing of Frankenstein, Mary Shelley’s monster comes to life in Chicago this season with four distinctive theatrical productions at Court Theatre with Manual Cinema, Lifeline Theatre, Lookingglass Theatre Company, and Remy Bumppo Theatre Company.
What is Chicago’s fascination with this undying tale? How will this story be told? Four Frankensteins, seriously?
Artists David Catlin and Cordelia Dewdney(Lookingglass Theatre Company), Sarah Fornace (Manual Cinema), Ian Frank and Eliza Stoughton (Remy Bumppo Theatre Company), and Robert Kauzlaric and Ann Sonneville (Lifeline Theatre) will answer these questions and more in a conversation led by Chicago Tribune critic Chris Jones.
