Based on Mary Shelley's Frankenstein, James Whale's Bride of Frankenstein (and almost every other Frankenstein movie ever made) this humorous work features a tight a cappella chorus and powerful dances that convey Frankenstein's newborn creature's experience as she struggles to become the perfect daughter/lover for her creator.
The cast features Jason Grossman (Funny... Sheesh, It's a Wonderful 1-man-show Life) as the paranoid Dr. Frankenstein, Renée Torrière (Downtown Vocals, Funny... Sheesh) as the bitchy Miriam Frankenstein, Jason Howard* (recently Feste in Twelfth Night) as the loveable gravedigger and Timothy Joseph Ryan* (Fogarty's "Next to Nothing") as the gregarious Doctor Walton.
Sharon Fogarty co-produces this work with Manhattan Theatre Source as part of their annual Estrogenius Festival, Honorary Chair Mercedes Rhul. Fogarty received her bachelor's in Dance from SUNY Brockport and has performed with Anna Sokolow, Meredith Monk, Ping Chong, Doug Elkins and the Imago Mask Theatre Ensemble. Her repertory includes 60+ ballets, hundreds of songs and 22 full length dance theatre plays.
An Actors' Equity Approved Showcase, Bride of Frankenstein ~ an experiment in intimacy was previously performed in 1992 at the Mulberry Street Theatre (with Fogarty and Agte as the original monsters), and again in 1997.

NEXT TO NOTHING
A play by Sharon Fogarty
Directed by Andrew Frank
Lighting Design by David Alan Comstock
~ The Present Company Theatorium ~ August, 2001
Summary: A mental patient who cannot speak struggles to convey her condition to an equally unstable psychiatrist.
This one-act play with dance and music features four women from St. Mary's Psychiatric Hospital in New York City. Characters suffering form schizophrenia claim the silent Daphne (Elizabeth Mozer), as their leader, proposing that she can control their thoughts and communicate with them telepathically. On the surface, however, Daphne appears the weakest, most innocent and least functioning. The audience discovers along with Dr. Heron (Timothy Joseph Ryan), the true relationship of Daphne and her fellow inmates.
Cast: Timothy Joseph Ryan*, Elizabeth Mozer*, Tiffany Card, Sharon Fogarty, Mary Stillwaggon* and Jason Grossman.
