National Theatre Live: Frankenstein

One of the great horror stories ever written gets a star-studded makeover as part of London's esteemed National Theatre's 50th anniversary celebration. Starring Benedict Cumberbatch and Jonny Lee Miller as both the monster and the doctor (they switch roles halfway through), this unique theater adaptation completely electrified audiences—both Cumberbatch and Miller shared the Olivier Award for Best Actor in 2012. With outrageous industrial sets and props plus powerhouse acting, Frankenstein breaths fresh life into the literary classic about a hideous creature abandoned by his maker, on a deadly, desperate mission to find companionship. For one night only, the Barclay screens the production as part of their National Theatre Live series—allowing you to spend this Halloween with one of the greats.
