National Theatre Live’s thrilling broadcast of Frankenstein returns to cinemas for a limited time, due to unprecedented audience demand.

Childlike in his innocence but grotesque in form, Frankenstein’s bewildered Creature is cast out into a hostile universe by his horror-struck maker. Meeting with cruelty wherever he goes, the friendless Creature, increasingly desperate and vengeful, determines to track down his creator and strike a terrifying deal.Urgent concerns of scientific responsibility, parental neglect, cognitive development and the nature of good and evil are embedded within this thrilling and deeply disturbing classic Gothic tale.

San Juan County Fairgrounds, Marie Boe Bldg.

Stage Left is thrilled to announce a four week run of the dynamic, thought-provoking, Tony Award-winning play, "RED," by John Logan. Although set in the studio of abstract painter Mark Rothko, in 1950s New York, this play speaks a universal language about a generation passing the baton, about ethics and art, about the ferocity of artistic passion—all seen through the father/son, mentor/student relationship of Rothko and his apprentice, Ken.

Daniel Mayes returns as Rothko;  and this year Stage Left introduces Seattle's Jonathan Shue as Ken.  

Dates & Show Times: October 24 - November 16,  Thursday & Friday & Saturdays at 7:30 p.m., Sundays at 4:00 p.m.
