Phantasmagoria, or Let us seek Death!

Dementrius Stewart as Doctor Frankenstein

 Demetrius Stewart, Jane Bradley, Katie Melby, and Andrew Lynch.

Centuries later, the creature still ambles through our culture. Mary Shelley unleashed her creation on the world: the first modern monster; an assemblage of the recent dead. On the 200th anniversary of Mary’s creation, we return to Frankenstein; or the Modern Prometheus to discover whether the dead ever truly leave us.

La MaMa's Ellen Stewart Theater, Fall 2016. Directed by Randolph Curtis Rand, with puppetry by Benjamin Stuber. 

The truly unique Phantasmagoria provides plenty of spooky fun, but, through its discussion of Mary Shelley and her work, also plenty of brain food that will leave you cerebrally stimulated long after the actors have taken their bows.

Our energetic intentions have consequences as a religious family man is confronted by a ghost from his past. Or maybe a con man. Or a demon. Or perhaps, an angel. 2 W, 2 M. 

Absolutely astonishing. Miraculous. Completely original and captivating.
— Craig Lucas
This play cuts through the barriers we erect that prevent us from living, from being authentic and loving...She is a playwright to watch.
