Living Spit is back at the Blakehay Theatre and they bring us the amazing Frankenstein; The Musical.
Two souls inextricably linked. One, a tortured and tenacious genius. The other, a hideous creature made up from bits of other people’s bodies. Yes, Howard and Stu are back for Living Spit’s unique take on Mary Shelley’s gruesome gothic horror, Frankenstein.
Geneva, Switzerland, 1823. Deeply affected by his mother’s untimely passing and the death of Greg, his pet hamster, undergraduate Victor Frankenstein comes up with a plan. Using all of his best science-y skills, he endeavours to conquer death, once and for all – by creating life itself! But will his creation be to his liking? Or has Victor unwittingly made a huge mistake? With original music, preposterous puppets, grotesque gags and diabolically desperate dance-moves, this rib-ticklingly raucous monster of a show will leave you in stitches.
The Times: “…this ribald reworking of the gothic horror classic is a beguiling rib-tickler…the sense of mischief and sheer silliness are difficult to resist”
The Stage: “…fabulous invention and sheer silliness underscore this anarchic adaptation.”
Musical Theatre Review “… musically strong, physically very funny and verbally dextrous … big funny bone moments”
Public Review “ … the polish of Morecambe and Wise”
StageTalk Magazine “Side-splittingly funny.”
After their sell out shows of ‘Odyssey’ and ‘Swan Lake’ at the Blakehay Theatre, this is not a show to be missed, so make sure you book your tickets early!
