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 Tony Award–winning creative team propel the movie’s famous gags to the stage, which the crew transforms into the bubbling, smoking, Tesla-coil-popping laboratory of the mad scientist Frederick Frankenstein. 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 hit The Producers, Brooks wrote the music and co-wrote the book for this second adaptation of his film work.
