Depictions of Frankenstein’s Creature from Mary Shelley to Benedict Cumberbatch
A conversation coordinated by Remy Bumppo Theatre Company
Shelley’s iconic creation has become one of the most recognizable but misunderstood characters in film, literature and on stage: Boris Karloff’s nonverbal behemoth to Herman Munster to your favorite green Halloween mask. But the Frankenstein monster is much more than neck bolts - and has been a favorite subject of filmmakers, artists, writers and performers for two centuries because of it. Join the creative team of Remy Bumppo Theatre Company for a panel discussion of the many depictions of this complex creature, celebrating the 200th anniversary of the novel’s publication.
Panel discussion to start at 8:15pm, following a 7pm screening of the 1931 Universal Pictures film FRANKENSTEIN (Dir. James Whale, 70mins, 1931, 35MM) starring Boris Karloff.
