Thats where the Flying Machine comes to the rescue. The New York-based theater troupe is dedicated to portraying the real story with a little help from masks, props, mime, and dance. In their production, you will get a taste of the novels two main themes: namely, that rejection can make an otherwise-good person turn psycho (sorry, did your ex-boyfriend already teach you this?) and that modern man better watch what he builds it could come back to kill him.
The Flying Machine performs Frankenstein at The Kravis Center for the Performing Arts (701 Okeechobee Blvd., West Palm Beach) Thursday through Saturday. Tickets cost $30. Call 561-832-7469, or visit www.kravis.org.
