That's the one I haven't seen yet.  I know what I'll be doing later!

Looking forward to this. I've seen him as the creature. My niece and I saw it in the theater a few years back.

Wahhhhhh, I missed it! Serves me right for being absent so long.....

Actually, I dimly remember hearing about it and then of course forgot ... pooh. I saw him as Frankenstein but really wanted to see his take on the creature as I thought it was the more interesting role.

I imagine all those other projects mentioned above have either been temporarily or permanently aborted. Poor Ben, he seems to have had bad luck in that regard. (I'm thinking of the Edison movie; delayed, then bombed anyway.)  I hear a lot of stuff is going straight to pay-per-view, which helps me not at all........

Hopefully they'll also put those things on DVD / Blu-ray -- eventually.

The National Theatre has had to close until the end of August. Notification went up yesterday, as I am a subscriber. From now on every Thursday past performances on National Theatre Live on its iPlayer, and I should hope they would re-do Frankenstein and Hamlet with BC!

In the meantime, he and Meryl Streep played the two wicked aunts of Part two in Taika Waitiki’s  reading of James and the Giant Peach on YOuTube for a fundraiser!

Thanks for posting this but er....

this happened a while ago!

I have been enjoying the NTLive performances on Youtube for the last 6 weeks!

Oh sorry I switched straight off after 'Streetcar named desire' last night and hadn't seen an announcement before...

So I am not sure if you mean something different is happening?!
