NATIONAL THEATRE AT HOME: "FRANKENSTEIN"
April 30, 2020  | By David Bianculli

National Theatre at Home, 2:00 p.m. ET

 
SPECIAL PREMIERE: Here’s another limited-time-offer treat from England’s National Theatre. On its website and on its own YouTube channel, for one week beginning this afternoon, National Theatre At Home presents yet another televised stage production from its archives. Today they’re giving us a double treat: alternating showings of its 2011 production of Frankenstein, in which the two lead actors took turns swapping roles. One is Jonny Lee Miller, who played Sherlock Holmes in CBS’s Elementary. The other is Benedict Cumberbatch, who played Sherlock Holmes in the PBS’s Sherlock. See one version of the production, in which Cumberbatch plays Dr. Frankenstein and Miller the Creature – then see the other version, with those roles reversed. Compare and contrast. The game is afoot!
