Benedict Cumberbatch Wants to Be Your Frankenstein

posted in: News

Now that you’ve watched everything on Netflix, listened to all previous episodes of the Real Rob Taylor (at least twice) and cancelled Disney+ while they shoot more Mandalorian, you should absolutely check out the National Theatre production of Frankenstein.

Starring Benedict Cumberbatch, Jonny Lee Miller, Naomie Harris and directed by Danny Boyle, it’s an extraordinary production that should be seen by anyone who loves live performances. And the full two-hour play is completely free to watch on YouTube.

NT are rotating their YouTube offering weekly, which means you’ve already missed the opportunity to see the stars switch roles, with Miller as Frankenstein and Cumberbatch as the Creature. So look lively.

EDIT: Looks like you missed it! But if you still want something different to watch, try this week’s NT production of Anthony and Cleopatra.
