How To Watch Danny Boyle’s Frankenstein

Director Danny Boyle is working on directing a National Theatre stage version of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein in the UK, before working on pageantry for the London Olympics.

The first ten weeks of the stage play quickly sold out, but due to high demand, the producers decided to stretch the production. So if your in the London area or planning a trip, the tickets for the later performances will go on sale soon. For anyone who can’t be their live, there is still a way to see Danny Boyle’s Frankenstein, as the performance will be broadcast to 375 screens around the world — 85 in the US — on March 17 and later broadcast to the UK and Europe on March 24th.

It’s the first play he has directed in 15 years and there’s an interesting twist to that encore broadcast: his actors Johnny Lee Miller and Benedict Cumberbatch will alternate the roles of Victor Frankenstein and The Creature between the two broadcasts.

Boyle will have 2 camera rehearsals, with up to 8 cameras recording the play on the night. David Sabel, NT head of digital media, told Deadline, “Our biggest problem is always, how can we make this exciting to watch rather than just have one static camera at the back? We’re not making a movie, it’s very much the live experience. This doesn’t feel like a piece of theatre that’s being re-staged for the cinema – you feel incredibly connected to the live performance. Our U.S. audience is growing quite dramatically.”

The idea of having the two actors switch roles really seems intriguing, that is if you could and would actually watch both performances, which most people won’t do. Still it is nice to see Danny Boyle back directing the stage, and hopefully in 2012 he can return to directing another genre film.
