NT Live's FRANKENSTEIN Set for Encore Broadcast at Irvine Barclay Theatre, 10/31
Frankenstein enjoyed a sell-out run at the National Theatre, and went on to win awards including the 2012 Olivier Award for Best Actor for Benedict Cumberbatch and Jonny Lee Miller. Oscar-winner Danny Boyle (Trainspotting, Slumdog Millionaire) directs this sensational production with Benedict Cumberbatch (Star Trek: Into Darkness, BBC's Sherlock) and Jonny Lee Miller (Trainspotting, CBS's Elementary).
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.
Suitable for ages 15 and over.
Tickets: $22 general; $17 full-time students and seniors.
The broadcast will be on Friday, October 31, 2014 at 7:15 PM at the Irvine Barclay Theatre (4242 Campus Drive Irvine, CA 92612). For more information, call (949)854-4646, visit www.thebarclay.org, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
