News   Next to Normal's Louis Hobson Will Be Part of Gay Bride of Frankenstein Concert
A concert version of the pop-rock musical fairytale Gay Bride of Frankenstein will be presented April 24 at Joe's Pub.

The 7:30 PM concert will feature Louis Hobson (Next to Normal, People in the Picture) and Ashley Kate Adams (La Cage aux Folles) as well as creators Dane Leeman (narrator) and Billy Butler (vocals).

The performers will be backed by The Monster Makers, including Butler on piano, Tim McCoy on bass, Jon McCormack on guitar, Dan McGary on drums and Patrick Dorow on keys.

Gay Bride of Frankenstein, 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."

Joe's Pub is located within the Public Theater at 425 Lafayette. For tickets, priced $15, visit or call (212) 967-7555.
