Frankenstein is the world's most iconic Gothic nightmare. It started on a cold, wet night in 1816, when Mary Shelley first dreamed of a "hideous phantasm," a man patched together from the parts of other men.

Come celebrate the 200th birthday of one of the greatest horror stories ever told, Mary Shelley's timely tale of humanity's obsession with knowledge and of the unintended consequences of scientific innovation, when Frankenstein lurches onto the stage of Philadelphia's Sedgwick Theater.

Based on the classic French novel by Victor Hugo, with music from the Disney feature film, this brand new musical masterpiece begins as the bells of Notre Dame ring through the streets of 15th-century Paris. The hunchbacked bell-ringer, Quasimodo, observes the Feast of Fools from his perch atop the cathedral. He desperately wants to go join the fun, but is held captive by his devious caretaker, the archdeacon Dom Claude Frollo. Escaping for the day into the boisterous crowd, Quasimodo finds a friend in the gypsy, Esmerelda. He isn't the only one captivated by her free spirit--the handsome Captain Phoebus and the wicked Frollo are equally enthralled. As the three vie for her attention, Frollo embarks on a mission to rid the city of "riff raff"-- and it's up to Quasimodo to save them all. Featuring the songs "Out There," "Topsy Turvy," "God Help The Outcasts," and many more, this is sure to be a breathtaking journey at The Sketch Club in Woodbury.

Sweeney Todd became a worldwide success, earning eight Tony Awards, (including Best Musical), for its Broadway premiere. Stephen Sondheim's and Hugh Wheeler's (A Little Night Music, Pacific Overtures) tasty, thrilling theatrical treat has simultaneously shocked, awed and delighted audiences around the globe. In the infamous tale, Sweeney Todd is an unjustly exiled barber who returns to 19th century London seeking vengeance against the lecherous judge who framed him and ravaged his young wife. The road to revenge leads Todd to Mrs. Lovett, a resourceful proprietress of a failing pie shop, above which he opens his new barber practice. Mrs. Lovett's luck sharply shifts when Todd's need for revenge inspires the integration of an ingredient into her meat pies that has the people of London lining up. Also adapted by Tim Burton into a hit movie starring Johnny Depp, Sweeney Todd now comes to The Media Theatre outside Philadelphia.
