THE MANY FACES OF FRANKEN­STEIN

Yorkshire Post - Culture & The Guide - - STAGE -

When Franken­stein was first pub­lished – anony­mously – many thought that Percy Shel­ley was the au­thor. It was also crit­i­cally mauled. Just five years af­ter it was pub­lished, the first adap­ta­tion came, a stage play based on the story. Since then there have been more than 100 adap­ta­tions of the story for screen, most rep­re­sen­ta­tions of the crea­ture are fa­mously based on the Boris Karloff por­trayal, although Robert De Niro is one of many to have played the in­her­ent hu­man­ity of Franken­stein’s cre­ation.

Dr Franken­stein, Sh­effield Cru­cible, March 15 to 25. 0114 2496000.
