Soho Rep Hit Frankenstein Extends to Jan. 16

News   Soho Rep Hit Frankenstein Extends to Jan. 16 Following a slew of positive reviews, the Soho Rep and The Flying Machine's new theatrical adaptation of Mary Shelley's Frankenstein has extended a week to Jan. 16, 2005.

The show began on Dec. 9 and was to have ended Jan. 8.

Directed by Joshua Carlebach, the cast will include Richard Crawford, Carine Montbertrand, Jason Lindner, Tami Stronach, Josh Koehn, Robert Ross Parker and Damian Baldet.

The design team has sets by Marisa Frantz, costumes by Theresa Squire, sound by Jeff Lorenz, lighting by Japhy Weideman and music by Jacob Lawson.

Carlebach penned the treatment of the classic gothic tale, about a young doctor who creates a living creature that eventually destroys him. The Flying Machine employs its typical mix of mime, dance, music, puppets and props in the production.

The show was developed during a July 24-26, 2003, workshop. The Flying Machine last visited Soho Rep's Tribeca space in fall 2003, with Signals of Distress. The play was based on a novel by Jim Crace about a bunch of shipwrecked Americans stranded in a small village on the isolated northern coast of England in 1830.

Other Flying Machine shows seen at Soho Rep include The Escapist (1999) and Archipelago (2001).

Tickets are $15 until Jan. 8 and can be reserved by calling Smarttix at (212) 868-4444 or online at www.smarttix.com. From Jan. 11, tickets are $35. For additional details, please visit www.sohorep.org.
