Join the cast and crew of Frank and Stein at Fort Salem Theater for a one-weekend only slapstick spectacle that’s guaranteed to get your feet tapping and your belly laughing!
About the Show
Frank and Stein is the genius work of Jerry Gretzinger, WNYT news anchor, and Jay Kerr, Fort Salem Theater’s artistic director. After dozens of video chats, rewrites, and negotiations, the two created a musical comedy in honor of Mary Shelley’s novel, Frankenstein, and its two-hundredth year anniversary.
This production puts a modern spin on Frankenstein, recounting the life of fictional character, Bobby Stein, a scientist by day and a Frank Sinatra wannabe by night. Through a series of events, Stein and his genetic scientist uncle manage to infuse some of Sinatra’s DNA into Stein, and Stein becomes a monster. In a press release, co-author Kerr notes that, although Stein is not quite the monster that Dr. Frankenstein created, he is “every bit as much a monster as Sinatra was at his darkest and most self-obsessed.”
