Young Frankenstein: The Musical
Mel Brooks's satirical reimagining of the Frankenstein legend and spoof of classic horror flicks leapt from the silver screen to the Broadway stage in 2008, when it picked up the Outer Critics Circle Award for Best New Musical. A fresh-faced cast and creative team propel the movie's famous gags to the stage, transformed into the bubbling, smoking, Tesla-coil-popping laboratory of the mad scientist Frederick Frankenstein. As the curtain rises, Frederick Frankenstein, haunted by his surname's connotation of madness, travels to Transylvania to settle his grandfather's estate. Instead, he inherits his unholy experiments. The newly reanimated monster inevitably goes on the loose, leaving Frederick to dodge the suspicious villagers and engage in romantic antics.
Enthusiastic musical numbers add to the comedy with songs such as "Transylvania Mania" and "Puttin' on the Ritz," which marks the monster's introduction into high society and burgeoning taste for designer neck bolts. As with his Tony-winning hit _The Producers_, Brooks wrote the music and co-wrote the book for this second adaptation of his film work. Choreographed by Tony Award–winning director Susan Stroman, the frightful farce leaves audience's toe's tapping.
