Occasionally the digitization process introduces transcription errors or other problems; we are continuing to work to improve these archived versions. This extravaganza boasts enough good actors, colossal sets and rafter-shaking special effects to equip a Shakespearean repertory company.
But money is a neutral factor in the theater; it alone cannot create fun. Alas, Victor Gialanella, the author of the evening, seems determined to prove that it is not.
Gialanella does appear to be in earnest. His script not only includes the expected set pieces - the stormy laboratory sequences and various murders - but it also regurgitates the Prometheus-inspired themes that underlined the Shelley original. What Mr. Gialanella fails to understand is that murders and messages become compelling only bwhen they are harnessed to a thrilling story.
Much of the evening is given over to gabby scenes involving the many supporting characters who have been sketchily appropriated from the novel. When each of them is murdered in turn, the violence is simply too impersonal to be either scary or affecting. As written here, Dr. Frankenstein is more an abstracted worry-wart than a man possessed, and not even that estimable actor David Dukes can bring him to fiery life.
The monster is equally bland. Jochim lacks a commanding physical or vocal presence. At least the scenes are plentiful, which allows for a large number of amusing set changes. Schmidt scenery , Carrie F. Robbins costumes and puppets , Jules Fisher and Robby Monk lighting - are all first-rate. Tom Moore, the quick-witted director, has choreographed the sweeping movement of scenery and cast with a sure pictorial sense.
This is probably not Mr. Even so, we feel nothing except the disappointment that comes from witnessing an evening of misspent energy. Directed by Tom Moore; setting by Douglas W.
