Gay Bride of Frankenstein, which is aiming for a life Off-Broadway, originally workshopped at the Players' Ring Theatre in Portsmouth, NH, and was a part of the 2009 New York Fringe Festival. A recording of the musical will be released this winter featuring music by composer Billy Butler and the Monster Makers.
The Monster Makers include Billy Butler on piano and vocals, Tim McCoy on bass, Jon McCormack on guitar, Dan McGary on drums and Patrick Dorow on keys.
The pop-rock fairy tale musical, according to press notes, "follows the exploits of four high school friends on one fateful Halloween night. A strange substitute teacher reads to a biology class from Mary Shelley's 'Frankenstein.' The roomful of seniors includes the sweet, virginal Chloe who is determined to be a good girl until the 'right person' comes along. Her best friend, Edna, has long since realized that her love for Chloe goes beyond the affection typically felt between two best friends. Chloe's boyfriend, Thad, wishes to join a fraternity but the main requirement for joining Gamma Alpha Epsilon is that he must not be a virgin. And then there's Hairy - the pot smoking voice of reason. Much to everyone’s chagrin, the Halloween Dance is canceled. However, the foursome is invited to the annual 'Monsters Ball' and all hell breaks loose when the bride arrives."
As previously announced, Rachel Klein is attached to direct and Eric S. Goldman will produce. For more information, visit www.gaybrideoffrankenstein.com.
