Frankenstein

When: April 1-3 2011

"LOOK, IT'S MOVING! IT'S ALIVE! IT'S ALIVE!" Henry Frankenstein's famous proclamation is no less appropriate for TheatreWorks' screening of National Theatre Live's Frankenstein. Much like this stage adaptation's title character, the broadcast isn't exactly live so much as reanimated, due to the fact that most smaller cities don't get the actual live simulcast. Still, "IT'S A WEEK OLD! IT'S A WEEK OLD!" — while technically correct — feels somehow less compelling. Directed by Danny Boyle of Trainspotting and Slumdog Millionaire fame, the production screens at 7 tonight, at 2 and 7 p.m. Saturday, and at 4 on Sunday at the Dusty Loo Bon Vivant Theater (3955 Cragwood Drive, theatreworkscs.org). A ticket will cost you $15. — Bill Forman
