A rainy night in a Genevan castle. Debauched poetry and too much wine. A teenage girl writes a spooky story. On the 200th anniversary of Mary Shelley’s creation, 'Frankenstein; or the Modern Prometheus,' 'Phantasmagoria' assembles a swirl of puppetry, biography, and storytelling into a market of ghosts. Part of La MaMa's 2016 Puppet Series.
