10/29-11/1: Franklin Stein's Project at CSU



It’s a short and sweet run, and timed just right: Cleveland State University’s Factory Theatre reworks Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein for Halloween, complete with allusions to famous retellings of the gothic tale. Franklin Stein's Project is set in Geneva County High School, where a student, Franklin Stein, seeks revenge for years of ridicule with a horrific science-fair project. The play’s creative team — writer Lew Wallace and director John Paul Soto — lead the student-run production, which follows in the spooky spirit of last year’s hit Night of the Living Dead. Performances are at 8 p.m. tonight through Saturday, with midnight performances tomorrow and Saturday, and a final 7 p.m. show on Sunday at CSU’s Factory Theatre (1833 E. 23rd St., 216.687.2113). Tickets: $5-$10. — Michael Gill
