Add to Calendar 04-08-2011 27-08-2011 15 FRANKENSTEIN With Mary Shelley and GABRIEL FRANKENSTEIN With Mary Shelley By Virginia Bartholomew & GABRIEL By Will Le Vasseur. Preview August 4th, 2011. “…Impressive in every department…” Martin Denton, NYTheatre.com. “To revive a Greek classic is a challenge, but to reinvent the enigmatic myth with new plotlines, characters, and dialogue that consistently retains thematic homage to the original is masterful.” Jennifer Rathbone, TheaterOnline.com. Redd Tale Theatre Company blasts into its fifth season with the world premiere of two original works! FRANKENSTEIN With Mary Shelley by Virginia Bartholomew, edited/directed by Will Le Vasseur, and GABRIEL by Will Le Vasseur, directed by Lynn Kenny. Previews are August 4th at Nicu’s Spoon Theatre. Opening Night is August 5th. FRANKENSTEIN is a tight re-telling of the original Shelley story as told by Victor, the Creation, and Mary Shelly herself. We get to hear in the author’s own words how this legendary tale took form, and what it meant to her. Immediately after, GABRIEL takes the Frankenstein myth and transforms it to modern times. Henry, a geneticist, unlocks a vital clue to our evolution. In doing so he creates a future version of humanity, and discovers his own. FRANKENSTEIN: Starring Virginia Bartholomew. Directed by Will Le Vasseur. GABRIEL: Starring Cameran Hebb, Will Le Vasseur, James Stewart. Directed by Lynn Kenny. Having survived a transplant cross country to New York City, Redd Tale Theatre Company continues to follow its motto: “To Provide Enlightening, Entertaining Sci-Fi Theatrical Experiences That Contribute To Humanity's Next Step Forward.” Beginning in 2003 with a recreation of the 1938 radio broadcast of The War of the Worlds, RTTC followed the next year with the West Coast premiere of Saucy Jack and the Space Vixens in Seattle. Then moving East, produced a successful run of Closer by Patrick Marber in 2007, and a critically acclaimed production of Lonely Planet by Steven Dietz in 2008. Its 2009 production of Maddy was critically acclaimed and subsequently published. Last year RTTC produced two full-length classical pieces, Macbeth and a new adaptation of Triumph of Love written by Le Vasseur. FRANKENSTEIN With Mary Shelley and GABRIEL run August 4 through August 27th, Thursday through Saturday at 8pm, matinees on Saturday at 2pm.
