ABOUT THE SHOW

The candles flicker. The rain beats down. And the creature stirs. Salty Brine ventures into the dark and disturbed as he twists Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein around The Smiths’ post-punk, indie classic The Queen is Dead. Witness a hideous monster come to life in Bigmouth Strikes Again, back by popular demand.

 

ABOUT THE ARTISTS

SALTY BRINE (Creator / Performer) is a New York-based cabaret artist, writer and actor. He is the creative force behind The Living Record Collection, a series of cabaret performances which deftly weave together iconic, popular albums with major cultural touchstones from classic literature to opera and beyond. Each album is performed with a live band and Salty’s unique brand of memoir-esque storytelling. As bookwriter, Salty is collaborating with the renowned songwriter of stage and screen, Alan Menken, on two previously unproduced musicals. Along with composer / lyricist Justin Levine, Salty has just received a commission from the Williamstown Theater Festival to pen the book to an original (as yet untitled) musical. As a performer, he has worked with director Andrew Neisler in César Alvarez’s original musical The Elementary Spacetime Show (Ars Nova, FringeArts); with playwright Adam Symcowitz, composer / lyricist Adam Overett and musical director Ian Axness in Clown Bar (Pipeline Theatre Company, The Box); and with Taylor Mac, Matt Ray, Machine Dazzle, Rachel Chavkin, Rachelle Garniez, David Drake and 50+ brilliant theater artists in Mac’s own five-hour epic The Lily’s Revenge (HERE).
