Adam reviews 'Frankenstein Bemshi!' and 'One Frogless Evening: A Tribute to Amphibian Artiste Michigan J. Frog'

With a fall chill in the air, I embraced the spooky spirit of the season with “Frankenstein Bemshi!” at Writers & Books. Perfectly timed for the tale’s 200th anniversary, the show offers a loose retelling of the Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein story through a blend of avant-garde film, music, spoken word poetry, and performance art.

In addition to performing three company shows at School of the Arts (the last show happens Saturday at 7 p.m.), several members of PUSH Physical Theatre produced solo works for Fringe.

Adam reviews 'The Spyglass Seven' and 'Truly Divine'

Poet Edgar Allan Poe makes for a characteristically gloomy romantic hero in “The Spyglass Seven,” a gothic drama written and directed by Michael Seebold. The play imagines that the ghost of the writer (played by Dillon Herbig) has been resurrected by the spirit of Beauty to return from the grave for one night.
