Tickets Not Available for this Order
For the third year, UMS and the Michigan Theater bring these high-definition screenings of live theater broadcasts by the National Theatre, London. The broadcasts feature plays produced by the National Theatre on cinema screens worldwide. In the US, the “live” screenings are delayed to accommodate the time difference. Broadcasts feature behind-the-scenes footage and interviews with actors.
A new play by Nick Dear based on the novel by Mary Shelley.
Oscar-winner Danny Boyle (127 Hours, Slumdog Millionaire) returned to the theatre to direct this visionary production with Benedict Cumberbatch and Jonny Lee Miller. It will return to cinemas worldwide from June for a limited season of encore screenings. Benedict Cumberbatch and Jonny Lee Miller alternate the roles of Victor Frankenstein and the Creature in two electrifying broadcasts.
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.
Wednesday, June 6 - Jonny Lee Miller as The Creature and Benedict Cumberbatch as Victor Frankenstein
Thursday, June 7 - Benedict Cumberbatch as The Creature and Jonny Lee Miller as Victor Frankenstein
