It's alive! Mel Brooks reunited with the creative team behind The Producers for this comedic reimagining of the Frankenstein story that became a Broadway hit. The musical follows young Dr. Frankenstein (pronounced "Fronkensteen") as he tries to complete his grandfather's work and bring a corpse to life. He is aided by the hunchbacked, bulging-eyed Igor, his beautiful lab assistant, Inga, and the frightfully eccentric housekeeper Frau Blucher. Featuring a live orchestra, an energetic cast and hilarious, catchy tunes like "Transylvania Mania," "He Vas My Boyfriend" and "Puttin' on the Ritz," Young Frankenstein is scientifically proven to be a horrifically good time.

Where to start? First of all, the playwriting: It's as genuine, moving, and touching as Our Town. In a year or two How to Write a New Book for the Bible will be performed everywhere. Next, the acting: I've gone to many plays In New York City, on and off Broadway. The acting is as good or better as any I've seen in New York. The two main actors, the woman who plays the mother and her son, the narrator, are able to move from deepest grief to a lighthearted quip in the blink of an eye. I noticed several times that you could hear a pin drop throughout the entire performance. The direction is superb, as was the staging. I can't think of a single yea but...MKA in Seattle

Writers are told to write what they know. But as Bill Cain discovers in writing about his own family, sometimes those we are closest to are the biggest mysteries of all. From the writer of Equivocation comes a beautiful new play taken from Cain’s own experiences caring for his dying mother. He asks the questions that speak to the heart of every family: What will never change…and what has to? A Jesuit priest as well as a playwright, Cain brings a fascinating view to this simple, powerful illustration of why the details of our lives and loves matter.
The show contains mild profanity.
