In the Fall of
Blanchard brought the character of The Creature to life in the
Off-Broadway production of Frankenstein at the 37 Arts Theatre.
This unique production focused closely on the Mary Shelley novel,
bringing the relationship between Victor Frankenstein and the Creature
to the forefront.
The Associated Press writes:
Commanding the stage, however, is Steve Blanchard, as the "Creature."
No green face paint, neck bolts, or platform shoes - just a recently hanged man whose body is claimed by
Frankenstein and who is
reanimated into a monster clearly in excruciating pain, both physical and mental. The depth of his despair is always
apparent - especially in songs such as "The Walking Nightmare" and the agonizing
"These Hands." Blanchard, perhaps best known for playing the Beast in Broadway's "Beauty and the Beast,"
is completely emotionally unmasked and stripped bare.
