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.

- “A comedy satire of delightful quality and great fun..." --<em>New York Post</em>
In The Real Inspector Hound, two theatre critics, Birdboot & Moon attend a performance of a British, who-dunnit. The mystery is set in the 1920s at a weekend party at Muldoon Manor, where all roads lead in, but not out. The party guests assemble for bridge and the police announce on the radio that an escaped madman is on his way towards the Manor. As the mystery continues with unexpected shootings and red herrings, Birdboot and Moon become increasingly more involved in the production's actual action, eventually finding themselves characters in the play. Enter the Real Inspector Hound to crack the case and in glorious Stoppard fashion, everyone's identities are questioned and the solution to the mystery is entirely unexpected!
The Boundary (co-written by Clive Exton), a perfect companion piece to Inspector Hound with its farcical look at murder and the English language, opens with two men whose main ambition is creating the ultimate dictionary as they return to their office and find their life‟s work in disarray. Mystery and intrigue ensue when they discover something unsavory underneath the shambles of the office and realize the definitions have also been altered. Now, if only they can find the page with the definition of murder…
Directed by Zachariah Robinson, both plays promise a fulfilling evening of mystery and intrigue as well as deep belly laughs!
