Absorbing, Clever, Disappointing, Confusing, Ambitious

See it if You like very intimate settings, this is presented in a fabulous old brownstone in Chelsea. Great costumes. Clever, out of the box story.

Don't see it if You want an easy to follow and clear play. This has its moments but it’s a mash up of too many styles(not done well enough)to be successful. Read more

Confusing, Great staging, Clever, Edgy, Entertaining

See it if an interesting, off-beat meeting of these historical characters in a period parlor, played by good actors, with good lighting is your thing.

Don't see it if you are not familiar with the characters or you would be bothered by missing words as actors face different directions over the low hum a/c

Atmospheric, Needs exposition, Disappointing, Cliched, Confusing

See it if sexually fraught Victoriana gladdens your heart. Depicts conception of Mary Shelly's Frankenstein during a debauched lakeside weekend

Don't see it if clarity is important to you. Play falls somewhere between dance and poetry as far as information is concerned. Folding chairs, bring pillow!

Frankenstein creator's strange rich family spar in drugged-out living room

See it if In-the-living-room play about Mary Shelley, husband Percy, step-sister Claire, her lover Lord Byron and his doctor. Scalding creative drama

Don't see it if Learned a lot about Claire and Dr. Polidori. Drug and alcohol abuse. I loved the intimate setting, but may be uncomfortable for some. Read more

It couldnt end fast enough.

See it if You dont mind ear splitting delivery in a small crowded room. There were glimmers of information about the subject matter. not enough.

Don't see it if This is a 'toothsome' subject with multiple POV to explore. There is no depth to the information nor are relationships adequately explained

Indulgent, Great acting, Entertaining

See it if you want to see a show deconstructing the myths about 18th and 19th century salons you learned in HS.

Don't see it if you want a realistic conclusion. Kee's script abandons the world he depicts in the last scenes to "redeem" his characters. Read more

Quirky, Confusing, Great acting, Funny, Absorbing

See it if you like out of the norm theater experiences. The actors in this production is what makes it so interesting.

Don't see it if you like standard fare. This is certainly not that.
