"PHANTASMIC!" NY Times
In celebration of its 15th season in NYC, the critically acclaimed, award-winning RADIOTHEATRE presents two of its greatest hits in repertory - the Drama Desk Award nominated Mary Shelley’s FRANKENSTEIN - and five times NYIT Innovative Theater Award nominated, twice winner H.G.Wells’ THE TIME MACHINE…two of the greatest, most influential Science Fiction tales of all time!

Written by a 19 years old girl in 1808, FRANKENSTEIN is celebrating its 200th Anniversary this year! THE TIME MACHINE (1898) was written by the Father of Modern Science Fiction and has never been surpassed in its theme about the dangers of traveling into the past and future. Both books have NEVER been out of publication around the world and continue to influence countless students, writers, filmmakers, artists, scientists and theologians alike. These stories are timeless in themselves as their protagonists, a scientist and an inventor, boldly challenge both God and the boundaries of morality and science…a challenge that is hotly debated in our times, as well! Will mankind ever succeed in this quest…or will it all lead to our inevitable doom?

RADIOTHEATRE pulls out all the stops with these two adaptations, presenting a terrific original orchestral score for each and packed with visual FX and award-winning sound design …in exciting, yet poignant, family-oriented tales for the holidays’ season, presented by its usual great company of storytellers…within its home at the 190 years old St.John’s Sanctuary in the heart of historic Greenwich Village, NYC.
