In 2011, London's National Theatre brought "Frankenstein," one of the world's most famous stories, to life on stage. Now, a year after the novel's 200th anniversary, the production will be shown again around the world, including at Northwestern's Wirtz Center. Buy tickets for Oct. 5 to watch Benedict Cumberbatch ("Sherlock," "Doctor Strange") as "The Creature" and Jonny Lee Miller ("Elementary," "Mindhunters") as "Dr. Frankenstein," or watch on Oct. 6 to see them swap roles.
