KARLOFF: The Man Behind The Monster, is a special audio adaptation of the stage play, KARLOFF, developed as an immersive deep dive into the thrill ride life of the world's most beloved "monster," Boris Karloff. Funny, dramatic, challenging, inspiring - Boris comes into focus as an especially talented and driven artist whose enthusiasm for life sets a wonderful example for us all.

NOTE: Preview streaming from the site is LOW QUALITY - Only by purchasing the album will you get a good listening experience.


Boris "Frankenstein" Karloff's only child, Sara, authorized Randy Bowser to develop a stage play about her famous father when the playwright presented her with the idea. During the many months of the show's development, Bowser had the invaluable aid of the world's leading Karloff expert, Stephen Jacobs, author of "Boris Karloff: More Than a Monster."

Sara attended the world premiere of the one-person-play in 2014 and was thrilled, saying the show was "Superb!" She loved it so much she stayed to attend the 2nd performance. When the show was on stage again in Arizona, she flew from California to see that production also. She is without a doubt, the play's biggest fan.
