National Theatre Live-Frankenstein
6/7/2012 7:00 PM
NT Live provides a unique opportunity for viewers to see live productions from the stages of London's National Theatre to cinema screens around the world. Don't miss the last performance of the National Theatre season, as Frankenstein comes to life in a thrilling new play based on the gothic novel by Mary Shelley. National Theatre Live - Frankenstein will be shown on Wednesday, June 6 and Thursday, June 7 in select movie theaters at 7:00pm.

June 6:  Benedict Cumberbatch as the Creature/Jonny Lee Miller as Victor Frankenstein
June 7:  Jonny Lee Miller as the Creature/Benedict Cumberbatch as Victor Frankenstein

Childlike in his innocence but grotesque in form, Frankenstein's bewildered creature is cast out into a hostile universe by his horror-struck maker. Meeting with cruelty wherever he goes, the friendless Creature, increasingly desperate and vengeful, determines to track down his creator and strike a terrifying deal. Urgent concerns of scientific responsibility, parental neglect, cognitive development and the nature of good and evil are embedded within this thrilling and disturbing classic gothic tale.

This visionary production, directed by Oscar-winner Danny Boyle, will shock audiences into the mysterious world of Frankenstein. Do not miss the thrilling twist of a classic tale as Benedict Cumberbatch and Jonny Lee Miller (who share the 2012 UK Olivier Award for Best Actor) reverse roles each night from the creator to the created.
