Reviews

“Director Paul Morris has assembled a fine cast, with some breakout performances by the principal actors, Luka Ashley Carter (Victor Frankenstein) and Olaf Eide (The Creature)… This is an ambitious production; yet despite all the stage magic employed there remains a strong focus on character and story.” – The Sappy Critic

“The opening moments of Falcon Theatre’s Frankenstein are a gift to the audience by actor Olaf Eide and lighting designer Jared Doren.” – League of Cincinnati Theatres

“Overall, Frankenstein is a worthwhile evening of theatre.  It is also demonstrating that Falcon Theatre is stepping up its game as a destination for all serious lovers of theater. This production adds to the great they work they did last season (Rabbit Hole, “Master Harold”. . . and the Boys) and the great work that will come this season.” – League of Cincinnati Theatres
