The company held an open rehearsal Oct. 4 for members of the press. Foster stars as "the rebel scientist who challenges the laws of nature and morality when he breathes life into his inanimate creature," according to the producers of the Mary Shelley-inspired musical by composer Mark Baron and lyricist-librettist Jeffrey Jackson. "Faced with intolerance and adversity, the scientist's creation rebels against the world around him, ultimately destroying the very man who gave him life."
