Tucson, AZ – October 1, 2014

TUCSON, AZ – Both brilliant and disturbing, the story of Frankenstein and his creation has fascinated audiences since the novel was first published in 1818. Victor Frankenstein has discovered the secret to reanimating human life – but is man meant to pierce the veil between life and death?  Frankenstein’s experiments will claim the lives of those he loves and introduce to the world a creature capable of both heartbreaking humanity and terrifying brutality.  Filled with suspense and terror, this is the perfect Halloween production.
