Like the electric bolts that shocked his monster alive, Atlanta is abuzz about “Frankenstein” at Theater Emory. Directed by Jon Ludwig of the Center for Puppetry Arts, the production was a unique opportunity for students to work with puppet masters and learn skills for their post-collegiate theatrical careers.

Ludwig reflects on the sold-out shows Feb. 18-27: “Not your average puppet show. This one was a monster. It was big. It was bad and it broke all preconceived notions of what a puppet show is like. Fueled by intense live music, surround sound and scenery, voodoo and one huge monster, this production rocked sold-out houses.”

“‘Frankenstein’ was a testament to the creative energy and teamwork of Theater Emory,” Ludwig adds.
