Fulvue Drive-in, September 2017

Frankenstein stars Federico Bonelli, Laura Morera, and Steven McRae with direction for the screen by Ross MacGibbon and fascinating choreography by Liam Scarlett, an ambitious ballet version of the Horror classic. © 2017 Fulvue Drive-in Read complete review

The Flip Side, March 2017

American composer Lowell Liebermann’s full-length ballet based on Mary Shelley’s classic horror novel is a dramatic delight, with atmospheric music that heightens the intensity of the whole monstrous saga. The dancing—notably by Steven McRae’s creature—is pretty spectacular and exquisitely shows off Liam Scarlett’s inventive choreography. The entire performance is a happy case of something that seemed iffy but ended up top-notch. Hi-def image and sound are excellent; extras include several backstage featurettes. © 2017 The Flip Side
