With Demoted, you suffer an hour and a half down the drain; comedian Robert Klein suffers the indignity of dancing in his underwear around a stripper pole. You can forget it; he has to live with it.
If you love Sherlock like I love Sherlock, you might be interested in this filmed play showing tonight and tonight only: Danny Boyle’s Frankenstein.
To steal all the details from our own Gazette:
“It’s alive! It’s alive! National Theatre Live, to be exact, which presents the monster hit Frankenstein on theater screens at 7 p.m. tonight and tomorrow only at AMC Quail Springs Mall 24, Cinemark Tinseltown USA and Norman’s Hollywood Spotlight 14. Directed by Danny Boyle (127 Hours), this whacked-out adaptation stars Sherlock’s Benedict Cumberbatch and Dark Shadows’ Jonny Lee Miller. Visit fathomevents.com.”
It’s my understanding at the two switch roles midway through the play, which sounds like Something to See, provided you’re not seeing anything at deadCENTER, that is. —Rod Lott
