This is sumptuous storytelling, a “Frankenstein” where thrills come not from bumps in the night but from rich, believable characters with full emotional lives.

Fascinating (and) highly immersive.
The Chicago Tribune
Within every man there is a monster; within every monster, a man. But which is which?
An eerie evening of ghost stories crackles to life as Mary Shelley unspools her tale of love, horror, power, and unholy experimentation. The celebrated Chicago ensemble, Lookingglass Theatre Company, returns to McCarter to give life to this iconic classic.
