after a wildly successful reading, Articulate Theatre Company's production of Doctor Frankenstein gears up for a limited run in November. Articulate is thrilled to have George Allison's new play DOCTOR FRANKENSTEIN inaugurate their residency at the historic West End Theatre.
A commanding cast charged with mastering the macabre and dramatic elements of George Allison’s engrossing version of the Shelley novel but taken from a different side of Dr. Victor Frankenstein, has been assembled to breathe life into the work opening at ATC’s new home, the West End Theatre, 263 W 86th Street, NYC, running November 8 – 23. In this version taking place after-the-fact, Dr. Victor Frankenstein asks "What if Mary Shelley got it wrong... on purpose?"
The cast features Tammy McNeill*, Steve Humphreys*, Loren Bidner*, J. Dolan Byrnes*, Chris Robertson, and Brianna Kalisch* and John Blaylock* as Dr. Victor Frankenstein

Articulate Theatre Company is an ensemble driven company who thrive on being storytellers. Our simple mantra is 'good stories, told well.' Guided by the three definitions of articulate, -clarity, structure and connectivity- we are committed to challenging and connecting audiences and artist with clearly structured work that is intelligent, thought-provoking and visually striking. Storytelling is the heart of theatre. And the stories we like to tell involve myth, magic and the mundane: Mythical creatures bringing new perspective to our mundane lives, or typical people doing epic things. Gods, faeries, artists, plumbers, teachers, heroes, villains, accountants, florists - when these elements combine, we see our reality in a new way.

The New York Innovative Theatre Foundation was created to bring recognition to the great work being done in New York City's Off-Off-Broadway, to honor its artistic heritage, and to provide a meeting ground for this extensive community. The organization advocates for Off-Off-Broadway and recognizes the unique and essential role it plays in contributing to American and global culture. We believe that publicly recognizing excellence in Off-Off-Broadway will expand audience awareness and appreciation of the full New York theatre experience.
