THEATRE: Nothing says Christmas like Frankenstein. Mary Shelley’s monster returns to the stage this week only -- but you've probably never seen it like this before. This show is held within a small proscenium frame using puppets based on 18th Century American portrait paintings, and lush sets inspired by Romantic era landscape painting. "Projected film and shadow puppets emerge from this central set to provide windows into the souls of the man and his monster.Frankenstein (Mortal Toys) reveals an uncanny world of melancholy, loss, and existential longing." Tonight's opening performance is sold out, but tickets are still available for tomorrow's and Saturday's shows.
8 pm // The Velaslavasay Panorama // 1122 West 24th St., Los Angeles // $15.
