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

Saw this because of its NYC Fringe success, but it was probably the most embarrassing production I've seen in my years in L.A. Most of the problems were with the script, which had all of the wit of a middle-school play; it even had a nifty moral at the end like a TV after-school special. Acting ranged from incompetent to passable with one exception: Julia Max was wonderful.
Quotes & Highlights
“Director Alyse M. Castillo infuses the show with a quiet vibrancy. The show reminds us that although we may be trapped by circumstance, it can be diverted with courage, boldness, and the love of the unknown. Recommended.” – M. Jarrett Christensen, Tolucan Times
Running time is 60 minutes.
Orbiting Astral Bodies features an ensemble cast including Michelle Holmes as the Moon, Julia Max (Gillian), Ethan Leaverton (Mark), Austin Hillebrecht (Warren) Andrea Arvanigian (Claire) and Philip Orazio (Allen).

There will be a talkback with the playwright (flying in from New York), the cast and the production team following the performance.
