From the writer and producers of last year’s The Snow Queen, The Broken Planetarium introduces a new allegorical folk opera based on Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein. The show takes on contemporary issues of female sexuality and what it means to be an artist, and tells the story through the subversive genre of cabaret. Set in present-day Portland, the story is told through mock documentary, opera-spiced eerie folk music, contemporary dance, and humor in order to convey a redemptive look at what it means to desire and create. (Appropriate for 18+)
