Though we’re still a ways away from finding out where we Stateside folks will be able to see a broadcast of Danny Boyle’s stage play of Frankenstein, the show is getting ready to hit UK cinemas, and we’ve got the trailer for you right here!
Boyle’s Frankenstein will be broadcast via satellite live in hi-def to 370 cinemas globally on March 17th, including 85 sites in the U.S. The play also will be broadcast in the UK and Europe on March 24th.
Jonny Lee Miller (“Dexter”‘s Jordan Chase) and Benedict Cumberbatch (“Sherlock”) will star in the alternating roles of Victor Frankenstein and The Creature. Miller will play Frankenstein with Cumberbatch as the monster on March 17th, then they will swap roles on March 24th. It is estimated that around 100,000 people worldwide will watch both shows with the idea they can compare and contrast the performances.
Keep it locked here for more information soon, and to find out about the live shows, visit the UK’s National Theatre online.
