FRANKENSTEIN, is a two-act sweeping, romantic musical about the human need for love and companionship.

While he enjoys unconditional love from Elizabeth, Victor grants none to his creation. 

FRANKENSTEIN plays on Tuesdaya at 7:00 p.m., at the Off-Broadway St. Luke's Theatre located at 308 West 46th Street (between 8th and 9th Avenues).

In a "melting pot" neighborhood in Hell's Kitchen, José Rodriguez, an undocumented Mexican delivery guy, has an American Dream - to become "a someone."

Speeding though one preposterous and hilarious plot twist after another, Jose and Alina embark on a wild adventure to fulfill their destinies. I Spy A Spy is a musical roller coaster ride on which our duo encounters Mexican thugs, Russian spies, a Pakistani pizza proprietor, a Korean deli owner and the Department of Homeland Security!
