Benedict Cumberbatch in FrankensteinIt’s alive!

Or live, at least. Sort of. I think.

This Sunday, April 3, a live performance of Danny Boyle’s stage adaptation of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein starring Benedict Cumberbatch (Sherlock, pictured) and Jonny Lee Miller, recorded in London at the National Theatre’s Olivier Theatre, will be simulcast at the Phoenix Art Museum.

It will be presented in HD and Dolby 5.1 Surround Sound in conjunction with Arizona Theatre Company, and starts at 2 p.m., running for 2 hours and 15 minutes with no intermission. Admission is $15 for museum members, ATC subscribers and students with ID, or $18 for the general public.

Last month I showed you a trailer for the play – and here it is again:
