Do you think Frankenstein will be recorded at some point and put out on a disk, like some Broadway shows?
I live too far away from the nearest showing for anyone to care to drive me, and I want to see it more than anything else in the world.
To be honest, I doubt it. To my knowledge the National Theatre has never done with with any of it’s other projects.
'Benedict Cumberbatch (hero of the BBC’s “Sherlock’’ series) and buff film actor Jonny Lee Miller alternate as Frankenstein and The Creature … I saw both, and the palm goes — by a margin — to Cumberbatch.
This is more of a compare/contrast between the two characters & performers.
‘Cumberbatch is more graceful, girlish almost: but to see this normally suave performer hurling himself into the agile physicality and awkward strangeness of the Creature is revelatory, a quantum leap for his reputation…’
'Cumberbatch is camper, funnier and nastier in the monster's role … And Cumberbatch - as fans of the Beeb's 'Sherlock' will attest - has a sadistic flair when it comes to playing a semi-autistic genius with a chip of ice at his heart.'
