The Wallis Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts and Four Larks present a production of “Frankenstein,” an adaptation of Mary Shelley’s classic novel, running from Wednesday, Feb. 12, through Sunday, March 1, in The Wallis’ Lovelace Studio Theater.
The unusual production of “Frankenstein,” commissioned by The Wallis and created by Four Larks, combines dynamic physical theatre, live music and experiential design. It brings the tale to life in a modern version spotlighting the dangers of unregulated technology. Sourced predominantly from Shelley’s novel in conjunction with its 200th anniversary, the production ponders new questions about moral responsibility for each generation.
The show is directed, staged and composed by Four Larks’ Mat Sweeney, with design and choreography by creative producer Sebastian Peters-Lazaro. It features a 12-member cast all doubling as musicians.
“Mary Shelley’s story, one of the greatest ever told, ushered in new genres, and its ethical questions continue to resonate with new advances in science and technology,” said Sweeney and Peters-Lazaro.
“With Four Larks; Mat Sweeney and Sebastian Peters-Lazaro, two artists whose boundless artistry has made its mark on Los Angeles’ creative landscape for many years, we have partnered with the ideal team to build this extraordinary piece of work,” said The Wallis’ Artistic Director Paul Crewes. “We invite audiences to join us for a very unique interpretation of ‘Frankenstein.’”
Audiences are warned that the production uses a strobe light effect, flashing lights and theatrical haze, and contains partial nudity. Tickets are $60. The Wallis is located at 9390 N. Santa Monica Blvd., in Beverly Hills. For information, call (310)746-4000, or visit thewallis.org/frankenstein.
