Q-tips say: Was ok. Different. It is the anniversary of “Frankenstein.” This play is a twist that not only does she want him back, but so does “Frankenstein” want everyone with him. Mrs. Q says: She did like the way “Frankenstein” was portrayed. Funny how they chose “Lifeline” Theater to portray this play of bringing “Frankie” back to life. Also enjoyed the “pub” we went to before the play for a quick “libation” – Roger Park Social bar. Fun place. See review under Restaurants 2018.
