National Theatre to stream both versions of ‘Frankenstein’ on YouTube

Wonderful news: National Theatre announced today that both versions of Frankenstein will be available on their YouTube channel next week!

The acclaimed stage production directed by Danny Boyle features Benedict Cumberbatch and Jonny Lee Miller alternating the roles of Victor Frankenstein and his creature, which earned them both a Olivier award for Best Actor.

The National Theatre At Home project began on late March as a way for NT to share some of its productions to be watched at home now that theatres and cinemas are closed in the UK and around the world.

On April 30 the channel will stream the version of the play with Benedict as the Creature, available for free until May 7:

On May 1 the version with Benedict as Frankenstein will be available for streaming until May 8:

You already can set a reminder for when both versions go live. You also can donate to National Theatre via PayPal or their website (registration required).
