Remy Bumppo’s “Frankenstein” – Review by Jeffrey Leibham

****HIGHLY RECOMMENDED**** What is the function of remorse? Does gender determine intelligence? If you should falter in your quest for scientific innovation will you be haunted by perpetual failure ad infinitum? These — and many more challenging questions – are posed in Remy Bumppo’s current production of “Frankenstein.” In Nick Dear’s crystalline adaptation of Mary Shelley’s novel (celebrating its 200th anniversary this year) and under Ian Frank’s brilliant direction, this “Frankenstein” not only proves Shelley’s genius but also elevates the narrative for those who may have a fading collective awareness of the work based on the popular Frankenstein films of the 1930’s. 4 SPOTLIGHTS
