Frankenstein previews start this Saturday (5 February) and our very own applebeing is going to the first preview night!!!
There are so many exciting aspects to this production:
- Danny Boyle directing and returning to the stage after too many years away
- Benedict and Jonny alternating the roles of Frankenstein and the Creature
- Underworld doing the music
- the venue being the Olivier at the National. The National is my favourite theatre in London and the Olivier is its biggest stage so it is going to be spectacular!!!
The current run (until mid-April) has already sold out at the National but the National have confirmed that they are extending the run into May. Continuing performances will go on sale in early March.
Here are a couple of articles to whet your appetite: http://www.guardian.co.uk/culture/2
In 20 years of going to the National Theatre I can honestly say hand on heart that THIS is the most hotly anticipated and exciting production that they have put on!!!
