The DCPA NewsCenter takes you backstage before all DCPA Theatre Company opening nights, offering a glimpse of the actors in preparation, and following through to the post-show celebration.

In the Theatre Company’s new staging of Frankenstein, which opened on Oct. 7, leading actors Sullivan Jones and Mark Junek alternate nightly playing the roles of Victor Frankenstein and his creation.

Our backstage visit includes watching the actors being fit with their wigs, as well as Junek inserting the colored contact lens that makes it look as if the monster has one yellow eye. When Jones plays the Creature, he wears the yellow lenses on both eyes. In the source novel, author Mary Shelley makes mention of the Creature having yellow eyes.
