FULL EPISODE Villa Diodati

May 29, 2020 - June 8, 2020

Past and present collide in “Villa Diodati,” the off-Broadway musical theater show that imagines the fateful vacation that Mary Shelley, Lord Byron and their friends enjoyed in the summer of 1816. The stormy weather kept the friends inside telling ghost stories, and it provided the inspiration for “Frankenstein.” In the play, a modern couple finds their lives overlapping with the literary greats.
