Later this month, the Danny Boyle-directed stage adaptation of FRANKENSTEIN opens in London, and, as previously announced, audiences via satellite broadcast all over the UK, Europe and abroad will garner a chance to see what we can only imagine will be very exciting. What’s more, a second performance will be filmed for an encore round of screenings and it looks like it just may be worth it to get to both!
For the first time, National Theatre Live, which broadcasts the stage productions, will be presenting two performances of a particular play, the reason being Boyle’s unconventional direction, which will see lead actors Jonny Lee Miller (last seen as the baddie on DEXTER) and Benedict Cumberbatch switch roles from performance to performance. Both renditions of FRANKENSTEIN will be filmed on March 17. The evening show touting Cumberbatch as the monster and Miller as Dr. Frankenstein will be the first one broadcast, shown in cinemas across the world that same day at 7:00 p.m.
The second performance, with reversed roles, will be broadcast on March 24, also at 7 p.m. in the UK and Europe, with other worldwide dates to come (although the Brooklyn Academy of Music in New York City is already slotted for that date; get tickets here).
FRANKENSTEIN also sees a turn from 28 DAYS LATER star, Naomie Harris.
