Spend an eerie evening with us as Mary Shelley's classic story crackles to life and McCarter Theater unspools her dramatic and provocative tale of love, horror, power, and unholy experimentation.


Date:            Wednesday, October 16, 2019

Time:           6:30PM in the West Lobby for cocktails / 7:30PM Performance

Place:            Matthews Theater at McCarter Theater Center, 91 University Place, Princeton, NJ


FRANKENSTEIN needs no introduction.  This gothic tale of love, horror, and the power to create life - and destroy it - awakens in this visceral retelling when Chicago's celebrated Lookinglass Theater Company returns to McCarter to give life to this iconic classic.  Did you know that Frankenstein was published just over 200 years ago when Mary Shelley was only twenty year old?  And she wrote it in competition with Lord Byron to see who could write the best horror story?  CLICK HERE for a preview. 


ARRIVE AT 6:30PM that evening and enjoy a glass of wine or cocktail compliments of McCarter Theater.  A coupon for that libation will be included with your ticket.  Gather with other Harvard alumni in the West Lobby for good conversation before the performance.  Wear crimson so we can easily find each other.


RSVP ON OR BEFORE TUESDAY, OCTOBER 1ST.  We have reserved excellent seats for this performance.  Unsold tickets will be released for sale to the general public after that date.
