Plays October 28 at 7:00 PM. An encore presentation of a performance originally broadcast live from the National Theatre in London. Presented in partnership with UMS; tickets available at UMS.org.
Captured live in 2011 from the National Theatre stage in London, this thrilling sold-out production became an international sensation. It returns to mark the 200th anniversary of Mary Shelley’s most famous novel.
Directed by Academy Award-winner Danny Boyle (Trainspotting, Slumdog Millionaire), Frankenstein features Benedict Cumberbatch (BBC’s Sherlock) and Jonny Lee Miller (Trainspotting).
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 increasingly desperate and vengeful Creature determines to track down his creator and strike a terrifying deal.
