Rousuck's Review: "Frankenstein" at Cohesion Theatre Company

Photography by Shaelyn Jae

It's Thursday, and time again for Midday theater critic J. Wynn Rousuck to join Tom in the studio with another of her weekly reviews of regional productions.  Today, she tells us about the Baltimore premiere of Frankensteina new adaptation of Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley's classic novel by playwright Robert Kauzlaric.

The play, which kicks off Cohesion Theatre Companys fifth season, transforms the classic horror tale from a story about an obsessive scientist and his creation, to a psychologically nuanced drama about a grieving woman trying to reinvent her father.

Directed by Melissa LaMartina, Frankenstein continues at the Cohesion Theatre Company until  Sunday, March 10.  All remaining performances are sold out, but you can check on ticket availabilities here.

J. Wynn Rousuck has been reviewing theater for WYPR's Midday (and previously, Maryland Morning) since 2007. Prior to that, she was the theater critic of The Baltimore Sun, where she reviewed more than 3,000 plays over the course of 23 years. Her feature coverage for The Sun included a comprehensive series chronicling the development of the Tony Award-winning musical, “Hairspray.” Judy got her start at The Cleveland Press and at Cleveland’s fine arts radio station, WCLV. Her broadcasting experience also includes a year as an on-air theater critic for Maryland Public Television.
