Danny Boyle’s ‘Frankenstein’ Stage Play with Benedict Cumberbatch and Jonny Lee Miller Will Stream For Free on Youtube

London’s National Theater is bringing director Danny Boyle’s unique stage adaptation of Frankenstein to homes across the globe via YouTube on April 30 and May 1.

Two versions of the 2011 production of Frankenstein will be shown, and both star Benedict Cumberbatch and Jonny Lee Miller, with the pair alternating the roles of Victor Frankenstein and Frankenstein’s monster.

Boyle told The Guardian back in 20111 that he always thought that “Frankenstein is creating life without women.  The idea is to bring two actors as close to that notion as possible.  And how do you do that?  In terms of the performance, Frankenstein and the Creature literally create each other: every other night they re inhabit each other.”

The productions were initially filmed and released to theaters in the United States under the Fathom Events banner.

Both versions will be broadcast at 7.00PM BST (2:00 PM EST) and then available on-demand for seven days.
