Want to see 28 Days Later director Danny Boyle's stage production of Frankenstein starring Trainspotting's Jonny Lee Miller and "Sherlock" Benedict Cumberbatch but can’t afford airfare to the UK? No worry; it’s coming back to a US theater near you for two nights only next month.
Due to popular demand Danny Boyle's award-winning production of Frankenstein returns to cinemas from June this year, with Benedict Cumberbatch and Jonny Lee Miller alternating the roles of Victor Frankenstein and the Creature for a special two-part presentation.
Early this year we learned that Oscar winner Danny Boyle would be returning to his theatre roots with a new adaptation of Mary Shelley's Frankenstein for the stage, and as of today we know who will be playing both the Monster and his creator, Dr. Frankenstein. In an interesting twist, two people will be alternating playing the roles.
Oscar winner Danny Boyle is returning to his theatre roots as part of the National Theatre's second season for 2010 with a new adaptation of Mary Shelley's Frankenstein. Boyle will make his debut at the respected venue directing Nick Dear's play as a "large-scale and theatrically and visually ambitious stage production."
