Off-Broadway's Gay Bride of Frankenstein Finds Its Director

News   Off-Broadway's Gay Bride of Frankenstein Finds Its Director
Rachel Klein will direct and choreograph Gay Bride of Frankenstein, which was part of the 2009 New York Musical Theatre Festival and is aiming for an Off-Broadway debut during the 2011-12 season. Entertainment lawyer Eric S. Goldman will produce.

The new musical was penned by Dane E. Leeman (book) and Billy Butler (book, music and lyrics) and is described as a "pop/rock, fairy tale musical that follows the exploits of four high school friends on one fateful Halloween night at a very unconventional Monsters Ball. It's John Hughes meets Scooby-Doo, and asks the age old question: 'Will the girl get the girl?'"

Executive producer and general manager Aaron Grant said in a previous statement, "We're aiming to either open the show, or start previews on October 31, 2011- theatre availability permitting."

Director, choreographer and costume designer Rachel Klein's recent directing credits include The Tragedy of Maria Macabre, a dia de los muertos dance drama through the kaleidoscopic lens of Hades; The Circus of Circus, a cirque infused musical creating the Orwellian horror of "Animal Farm" as told by circus performers at the House of Yes; Princes of Darkness, a one-man journey depicting the likenesses of Oedipus Rex, Hamlet, Dracula & Lucifer, performed by Bill Connington at Theater for the New City; Hound, a Baroque cabaret portrayal of the Sherlock Holmes mythos; and Go-Go Killers!, a retro-futuristic dance-sploitation epic about a dying Earth.

The musical was originally produced as a workshop at The Players' Ring in Portsmouth, NH.
