Admittedly awesome

Filmmaker Danny Boyle has been working on a stage version of Mary Shelley's Frankenstein, and it sounds gimmicky but cool: it will feature relatively big-name stars (Johnny Lee Miller and Atonement's Benedict Cumberbatch), music by the techno duo Underworld, and halfway through the play's run (on March 24th) the two main actors will switch roles.

Plus, for those of us who can't afford to fly out to wherever this sucker is playing, the play will be broadcast live in HD via satellite on 375 screens world-wide on March 17, including on 85 screens in the United States. (Click here to see if it's playing in a theater near you.)
