It's alive! Hollywood's king of farce and parody, Mel Brooks, reunited with the creative team behind The Producers for this theatrical reimagining of Young Frankenstein, the 1974 comedy that took on the classical horror film genre. The musical follows young Dr. Frankenstein (pronounced "Fronk-en-steen") as he tries to complete his grandfather's experiments to reanimate the dead. He's aided by the hunchbacked, bulging-eyed Igor ("Eye-gore"), his beautiful lab assistant, Inga, and the frightfully eccentric housekeeper Frau Blucher, who together sing a number of frightfully catchy tunes like "Transylvania Mania," "He Vas My Boyfriend" and "Puttin' on the Ritz." Debuted in 2007 and on Broadway until 2009, The New Mel Brooks Musical Young Frankenstein gets a local cast and a black-box venue in this new production from DOMA Theatre Company. Learn More

I thought DOMA did a terrific job of staging a fairly difficult musical. The show was very well cast and performed, and is definitely worth seeing. My only complaint was that the ending didn't work as well as it could have, and seemed somewhat truncated and abrupt. I'm not sure why they cut the song "Getting Tall" which is sung by the young Guido, but I think it was a mistake, since that song is basically the resolution for the adult Guido's emotional arc in the show. However, the rest of the evening was so good, that the (somewhat) weak ending didn't diminish what had come before. Great work, DOMA!
