Mary Shelley

Audience Testimonials

Frontczak portraying Shelley with audience

"The Kansas City Public Library staff was gratified when this program drew a large and diverse audience — appealing across race, gender, age, and background. The level of questions revealed the intensity of audience interest. Afterward, many people commented about the quality of the presentation, the obvious depth of research, her clear delivery, and exquisite costuming. I, and our enthusiastic audience, will long remember Frontczak's Mary Shelley portrayal as a programming highlight of the "Frankenstein: Penetrating the Secrets of Nature" traveling [AMA and NLM] exhibit."
Margaret Clark, Director of Adult Programs, Kansas City Public Library 

"It's one thing to read a finished book, but it's quite another thing to hear someone describe the path from not having written a book, to having written one. It makes me understand how easily it could have been me or one of my friends doing something equally as extraordinary. It's good to understand that it never begins as extraordinary from the point of view of the creator." 
Chelsea Boyle, pre-college student 

"Ms. Frontczak’s portrayal of Mary Shelley was sensitive and masterful, denoting the depth of her research into the character and her attention to detail. Her performance added a wonderful, rich layer to our Frankenstein-related programs."
