NT Live presents: Frankenstein

Enjoy this special return engagement of Frankenstein. Oscar-winner Danny Boyle (127 Hours, Slumdog Millionaire) returned to the theatre to direct this visionary production with Benedict Cumberbatch and Jonny Lee Miller.

One of the greatest feats ever created on the Nation Theatre’s stage, we are proud to bring you this theatrical event on the Music Box Theatre screen. This hybrid experience combining film and theatre is unparalleled. Audience members will see more from their seat in our Chicago cinema than the front row of the National Theatre of London—but they will feel transported to the world famous theatre on the River Thames.

National Theatre Live presents Frankenstein

directed by Danny Boyle starring Jonny Lee Miller and Benedict Cumberbatch

Oscar-winner Danny Boyle (127 Hours, Slumdog Millionaire) returned to the theatre to direct this visionary production with Benedict Cumberbatch and Jonny Lee Miller.

November 30th at 8pm – Cumberbatch as The Creature, Miller as The Doctor
December 1st at 5pm – Cumberbatch as The Creature, Miller as The Doctor
December 1st at 8pm – Cumberbatch as The Doctor, Miller as The Creature

Frankenstein enjoyed a sell-out run at the National Theatre, and went on to win awards including the 2012 Olivier Award for Best Actor for Benedict Cumberbatch and Jonny Lee Miller.

First broadcast to cinemas in 2011, don’t miss this second chance to catch Danny Boyle’s electrifying stage production as encore screenings take place across the UK and around the world from June 2012.

Jonny Lee Miller and Benedict Cumberbatch alternated the roles of Victor Frankenstein and the Creature throughout the show’s run at the National Theatre. Many cinemas will offer the chance to see both of these versions.

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 deeply disturbing classic gothic tale.

Performance Running Time: Approximately 2 hours (no interval)

Suitable only for 15yrs+
