So I went to the cinema this evening to see Frankenstein. A recording of the play that was on at the National last year. I was blown away, compelling inventive modern theatre. Utterly mesmerised by Johnny Lee Miller as the Monster and by Benedict Cumberbatch as Victor Frankenstein. I don’t really have the words, but it left me breathless, it left me exhilarated and I can only imagine that I would have passed out from the awesome had I saw it live.
It engaged a secondary audience as effortlessly as the the live one and I can only squee about.
I would love to watch this again with Cumberbatch playing the monster, but it was really a thrilling piece of theatre. Visceral in places and unflinching and inventive and clever.
I feel inspired, just be seeing it.
