While reading about all the different quarantine performances being released by different actors and musicians, I stumbled upon this glittering little gem. Frankenstein. Directed by Academy Award-winner Danny Boyle, a thrilling production starring both Jonny Lee Miller and Benedict Cumberbatch as Victor Frankenstein and his Creature (the two leading actors alternated between roles) took to the grand stage at the National Theatre in London back in 2011, and it’s now headed to YouTube, totally free of charge!


The National Theatre At Home, will stream Frankenstein Thursday, April 30 & Friday, May 1. See Benedict Cumberbatch play the legendary creature and Jonny Lee Miller as Victor Frankenstein. Starting 7pm UK time on Thursday April 30th until 7pm UK time on Thursday May 7th. See Jonny Lee Miller play the creature and Benedict Cumberbatch as Victor Frankenstein from 7pm UK time on Friday May 1st, until 7pm UK time on Friday May 8th.

The playbill reads: “Childlike in his innocence but grotesque in form, Frankenstein’s bewildered Creature is cast out into a hostile universe by his horror-struck maker. Urgent concerns of scientific responsibility, parental neglect, cognitive development and the nature of good and evil are embedded within this thrilling and deeply disturbing classic gothic tale.

So select a time to watch a classic by two extraordinary artists. Click the link below.
