54 Below

A Nonprofit Cabaret Venue

Come to 54 Below and experience the first concert performance of Vicky & Frank, a new musical by The New York Times bestselling novelist and screenwriter Tommy Wallach. Vicky & Frank is a gothic musical comedy set in middle America circa 1950, loosely based on Mary Shelley’s “Frankenstein.” It tells the story of two teenagers: Vicky Godwin, who dreams of becoming a famous scientist, and Frank Neetins, the boy she accidentally kills and purposely reanimates. What follows is a macabre and radical reimagining of the most famous science-fiction story ever told, complete with murderous monster dogs, underground gay nightclubs, righteous proto-feminists, and a full-on, torches-and-pitchforks climax.

Tommy Wallach is the author of five young adult novels, including “We All Looked Up,” which spent over six months on The New York Times bestseller list. His limited series about the JonBenét Ramsey case is forthcoming from Paramount+ and 101 Studios as part of their American Tragedy anthology series. He also owns Hatch Escapes, a Los Angeles-based games company, creators of LA’s #1 escape room, Lab Rat, and the tabletop narrative game Mother of Frankenstein, currently available in all 2,000 Barnes & Noble stores.
