National Theatre Live’s thrilling broadcast of Frankenstein returns to cinemas for a limited time, due to unprecedented audience demand.

Directed by Danny Boyle, Frankenstein features Benedict Cumberbatch and Jonny Lee Miller alternating roles as Victor Frankenstein and his creation.

The production was a sell-out hit at the National Theatre in 2011, and the broadcast has since become an international sensation, experienced by almost half a million people in cinemas around the world.

Playing from 30 October in the UK (varying dates internationally).

picked up my ticket during strike yesterday. this’ll be my third screening, this time with friends!!

"One more draft" … one more chance to get it right …

That old saw about bad dress rehearsals leading to a good opening night is largely a bunch of hooey. 

But in the case of last night’s rehearsal, a terrible first act can lead to a second act that just soars. 

If they can get their shit together so that both acts work then they’ll have an a-fucking-mazing show!

Preview tonight, official opening tomorrow night, and then praise god let me sleep in on Saturday morning…

BULLET JOURNALING 

Watch the original video here ( x )
Before I saw this video, I always kept a book for my homework. I use grid paper and it’s perfect for BJ… Heh. After watching this, it helped me to start developing a system I’m currently satisfied with. 

To-do apps don’t work with me. It always just sits on my screen with a notification and swiping something doesn’t feel as satisfying as crossing it out victoriously with a pen. ^_^

  1. LEGENDS ( you can also do it like thisHelps you quickly figure out what certain tasks are at a glance. The colours are for my spiraldexes which I will not be discussing unless you guys request it. c:
  2. Pages This is basically what my pages look like. I write the numbers at the lower corners.I also added sticky notes for extra stuff like memorizing my moral definitions. :p
  3. Calendar  ( x ) If you watch the video, you’re supposed to list out the dates but I prefer both, so I draw a calendar and paste it in my book and list out all the really appointments/stuff I have to do in my drawn calendar and some not-important-but-still-worth-noting notes in my list-calendar.
  4. Index Just write down the pages as shown in the video. Pretty simple. 
  5. Other things you can include: I also stick some motivational images on the last page and stuff like that. Spiraldexes can be fun but they tend to be a little time consuming to draw or at least, I can seem to use them effectively. :c
  • Have pages especially for grocery lists/ grades/ etc. 
  • Page full of favourite recipes
  • Stick an envelope at the back cover and fill it with motivational inspiration!
  • Stick printables ( x ) ( x ) ( x ) ( x )
  • Start a goal/wishlist!

 Good luck! :* 

So this was my weekend. A seven hour line rehearsal on Saturday, followed by a 9 hour day Sunday as we shoved in a line rehearsal for two of the three characters, and then we moved into the performance space and did a full run of the show. 

Saturday was brutal. It’s a three character show, and all three of the actors have different processes and its been a challenge to keep things ticking along with so many different needs. 

Let’s just say I’m super glad I took tomorrow off work. I probably won’t get a chance for too much extra sleep, although maybe a little, but that set that’s up there has to be draped in muslin and props have to be gathered, and all the little things that have to get done sooner rather than later. 

Theater is hell on wheels when you also have a day job…
