Dear Friends of Automata,
Frankenstein: Mortal Toys is opening in New York next week.We would love it
if you would spread the word to your friends and family in the area. Below

Thanks,
Susan and Janie                              At Here Art Center in New York

Follow the haunted alpine journey of Victor Frankenstein as he confronts the
loneliness and rage of his alienated monster. This sublime  miniature
spectacle features puppets based on 18th Century portrait paintings, lush
sets inspired by Romantic era landscape painting, and an evocative musical
score by Severin Behnen.
      
The LA Times lauded this ?production of ultra-restrained elegance and
arresting beauty,?and LA Weekly raved: ?Despite its diminutive scale,
Frankenstein rivals Hollywood films in its ability to sweep viewers into
another world, a world so carefully crafted that you can?t help but lean
forward, entranced, as the story draws you toward its haunting conclusion.?
