frankenstein

Let’s be ‘Frank’

National Theatre Live’s ‘Frankenstein’ is alive for two days.

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

C’mon, get slappy

Alloy Orchestra scores some pratfalls at OK Mozart.

As part of this week’s OK Mozart series in Oklahoma City, the Alloy Orchestra returns to perform a live soundtrack to silent films.

At 8 p.m. tonight at Oklahoma City University, the trio presents Masters of Slapstick, a 62-minute program of shorts starring some of the screen’s most legendary silent comedians: Charlie Chaplin, Buster Keaton and Fatty Arbuckle.

Alloy Orchestra is known for crafting unique, original soundtracks to films that had none, using an array of found percussion instruments and state-of-the-art electronics. The Massachusetts-based group was part of last year’s OK Mozart festivities with Fritz Lang’s Metropolis, for which I interviewed Alloy leader Ken Winokur. It’ll give you a good idea of what to expect with tonight’s performance (as will the clip below), despite the difference in films being shown.

Tickets are $10-$20. For more information, visit okmozart.com. —Rod Lott

Hysteria

What’s all the buzz with ‘Hysteria’? It’s a genial comedy about a gynecological breakthrough.


Drama

Rod Lott
Hysteria is the feel-good movie of the summer — not for any feelings invoked in its audience, but because it’s a romantic comedy about the birth of the vibrator.
