Sexual innuendos galore, totally irreverent asides, wildly wacky humor, hilarious camp, and non-stop fun. Yep, Mel Brooks is back on Broadway with The New Mel Brooks Musical YOUNG FRANKENSTEIN. Based on the popular motion picture and spiced up with comedic songs by Brooks himself, this delightful play centers around the scientific escapades of Dr. Frankenstein (marvelously portrayed by Roger Bart) and a cast of bizarre characters that inhabit a castle/laboratory in Transylvania. Megan Mullally is Frankenstein’s madcap fiancée.

Scenery designed by Robin Wagner borders on genius; throw in some special effects by Marc Brickman and creative lighting by Peter Kaczorowski, and the genius line is definitely crossed. William Ivey Long should also be commended for his costumes. All the elements are there for a great time, and the audience is not disappointed with YOUNG FRANKENSTEIN. The clapping begins before the play and continues throughout. Delightful entertainment!
