L.A. Theatre Works to Screen National Theatre Live Broadcasts of HAMLET and FRANKENSTEIN, 1/11
L.A. Theatre Works & The James Bridges Theater present two live broadcasts in HD: "Hamlet" and "Frankenstein" at UCLA's James Bridges Theater.
- Frankenstein in HD - Adapted for the stage by Nick Dear and realized by Academy Award-winner Danny Boyle (Best Director, Slumdog Millionaire), Frankenstein is an encore presentation of National Theatre Live's smash hit starring Jonny Lee Miller as Victor Frankenstein and Benedict Cumberbatch as The Creature. "A monster hit for the National Theatre. Does it live up to its billing? The answer is an almighty 'yes'." - Time Out
- Hamlet in HD - Olivier Award-winning actor Rory Kinnear plays Hamlet in a dynamic production of Shakespeare's complex and profound play about the human condition, directed by Nicholas Hytner. "Tremendous. Rory Kinnear's performance is superb in its resonance and intelligence. This is a Hamlet for now." - The Sunday Times
Both productions return to cinemas as part of the National Theatre's 50th anniversary celebrations.
