In this modern musical adaptation of the 1970s film comedy based on the original Mary Shelley story, (whew!) Fredrick Frankenstein, grandson of infamous monster creator Victor Frankenstein, inherits his family estate in Transylvania. With the help of a hunchbacked sidekick, Igor, and a leggy lab assistant, Inga, Frederick finds himself in the shoes of his mad genius ancestor. “It’s alive!” he exclaims, as he creates a creature to rival his grandfather’s. Eventually, of course, the monster escapes and hilarity ensues. You know where this is going, right?

In Arthur Miller’s brilliant modern classic, Joe Keller and Steve Deever, partners in a machine shop during World War II, have turned out defective airplane parts, causing the deaths of many men.

Miller’s powerful play explores themes of family, love , guilt and blame and the price of achieving the American Dream, building to a climax of electrifying intensity.
