Frankenstein

For your Holiday pleasure, a bit of the wonderful 2011 stage production of “Frankenstein” at London’s National Theater.  I saw this last night at a movie theater (a blaspheme in itself, putting a stage play on screen, but that’s another theological debate).

When the play was in production, Johnny Lee Miller and Benedict Cumberbatch switched roles every night—first being the Creator, and then the Creature.  Their performances fed off each other, as the Creature and the Creator do in Mary Shelley’s story.

And then, how interesting that both actors moved on to play Sherlock Holmes as leads in their own individual TV series.  Art mimics Life mimics Art.
