Pop/rock musical, Gay Bride of Frankenstein which recently closed a successful out of town run was back in NYC for a one night only industry concert reading at Joe's Pub on Tuesday, January 25 at 7:00 pM. Starring Louis Hobson, who played the role of Dr. Madden/Dr. Fine in next to normal since the musical's pre-Broadway engagement at Arena Stage in 2008. The concert also featured the following cast members from the out of town run: Ashley Kate Adams (reprising her role from NYMF), Megan Kane, Wade Elkins, Derek Carley, Joshua Moore, Bradley Gale, Britt Mack and Maggie Politi. Directed by Igor Goldin and musically directed by Patrick Dorow. The book was written by Dane Leeman, who also narrated the night and Billy Butler. Music and lyrics by Billy Butler.
David Vining of NYTheatre.com said it would be, "...more accurately, though admittedly less flashily, titled Fanboy Lesbian Scooby-Doo Bride of Frankenstein. And if that seems like fun to you, you're in for a treat!"
Gay Bride of Frankenstein is a Gothic fairy tale that follows the exploits of four high school friends on one fateful Halloween night. Will the girl get the girl? Never has there been a Halloween love story like this with rock and roll, mystery, magic and a cartoon caper that will scare you silly.
