Both productions are part of SubletSeries@HERE: a curated rental program, which provides artists with subsidized space and equipment, as well as technical support. AMP is a multi-media solo horror piece about scientist Luigi Galvani's discovery of animal electricity in 1790 and how it informed the creation of Mary Shelley's Frankenstein as well as the development of electroshock therapy in the 1950's. In AMP, Mary Shelley begins the process of writing Frankenstein on stage. Mary's monologues are interwoven with film interviews of a woman who auditions for the Boston Symphony during their first historic "blind auditions" and is committed to an asylum. AMP will feature sound and projection design by Martha Goode, with video and still photos shot on location inside abandoned asylums on the East Coast. Additional text is from the writings of Mary Shelley, Percy Shelley, Lord Byron, William Godwin, Mary Wollstonecraft, and Luigi Galvani. AMP will also feature the voices of J.Stephen Brantley (NYIT 2017 Doric Wilson Independent Playwright Award; Difficult People on Hulu) as famed philosopher (and Mary Shelley's father) William Godwin, Chloe Dirksen as the architect of modern feminism, (and Mary Shelley’s mother) Mary Wollstoncraft, Ryan McCurdy as Percy Shelley, and Jonathan West as Lord Byron with the help of Dialect Coach Chloe Dirksen. AMP was previously developed through residencies at Write Out Front and All For One Theater. For the play AMP, Jody Christopherson is the recipient of a 2017 New York Society Library grant, for emerging female writers writing about history and literature. AMP will run in rep with Greencard Wedding, which stars Jody Christopherson and Ryan McCurdy. http://www.cityguideny.com/eventinfo.cfm?id=259910 HERE HERE
