In the midst of our rushed trip and busy-ness at the funeral, etc. I didn't really express my admiration for your work on your Frankenstein rock opera. I think you did some impressive work with so many aspects of that: the music, writing and recording, of course; the casting (perfect actors for each part, really cool how you found people "on the street"); staging and movements of the actors--that would be the direction, I guess; apparently the very positive cameraderie among all the people involved--that is probably very important and they certainly loved being part of the production, it seemed. All of the people involved certainly thought very highly of you, as did a lot of people in the audience from what I overheard. That was a talented group of actors. The best thing of all was the tree stump! Just kidding, but I did enjoy the humor in the note projected onto the curtain. By the way, you made the mosrt of a challenging situation there, with not having much of the stage to work with. The Scene notes projected onto the curtain had a certain creepy look. I am amazed and impressed overall. Dan Todd, Brother, Mich
We didn?t a chance to talk with you after the play, but we wanted to let you know that it was wonderful!!! Our friends also enjoyed it as much as we did. The young man, Thompson, that played the monster was great. Was that his real voice or did he change it for the play? He was perfect for the monster. Hard to believe he is only 18. Maria Cicco (Mary) has such a beautiful voice. Her height (shortness) was perfect along with the monster. We would have seen her at Rabbit Run and probably Tom Hill. It didn?mention which play he was in at Rabbit Run. The whole cast was great, really liked Pimperton and Braston. Don?ink we can say enough good about Frankenstein The Rock Opera. You should be very proud of everyone, especially yourself!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
When is the next show????????????Beth Weidig, friend
Tom: You did great and we all wish you peace and.....................................REST!!!!!!! Dave Lynch, cast
Didn't have much time to talk to you yesterday, but I wanted to tell you just how impressed I was with the play (and I don't impress easy!). From the story to the music and everything in between, Deb and I just enjoyed it thoroughly! Congrats on your success! :Everything was rock solid. The time and effort to write and organize the whole thing. Very impressive. I still have some of the songs running through my head. :) Lorne Hutter, professional soundman
Thanks, Tom, my pleasure. Great way to spend a Friday night. That goes for me and all the people we saw on their way home. Standing next to 'Pimperton', hearing so many people complimenting him, and rightfully so, you could tell they really enjoyed themselves, they weren't just perfunctorily shaking hands.Great job putting everything together, and I mean everything, wow. My wife and son are coming tonight. Terry Smith, cast
Standing O last night from over 200 at the premier, and tonight closing night with even more pre-show sales. It's a great story how a talented musician, in this case Tom Todd, can channel his creative sources from one medium, music, into another, the play, and bring entertainment to so many. Although it's understandable that theaters put on the proven productions time after time, it's still inspiring to see people, such as Tom or Gregory Lavelle of North Olmsted, to take a stab at writing original plays or original adaptations. Terry Smith, cast
Congratulations on a fine production! From what I could see on Friday night, it looked like a huge success! I hope Saturday was even better!
Now to get it into other theaters? Ha ha! We shall see! Once again, congratulations! MaryMartini, friend
JUST WANTED TO E-MAIL A SHORT NOTE TO LET YOU KNOW HOW MUCH I ENJOYED THE PLAY LAST NIGHT. THE BACK GROUND MUSIC WAS PERFECT. EVERYONE DID SUCH A NICE JOB. SUCH BEAUTIFUL SINGERS. A LOT OF GREAT TALENT. SEE THROUGH THE SURFACE IS ON ONE OF THE CD'S I HAVE OF YOURS. DID YOU MAKE A CD OF THE BACK GROUND MUSIC FROM FRANKENSTEIN.
