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.

Please go and see this play. The story line of what women go through on release from prison is perfectly scripted and performed. It is a psychological drama that had me bouncing between laughing and wanting to cry and everything in between. Emily Chisholm and Christina Mastin acted out their characters with extremely compelling realism. Sheila Daniels as Director again showed her brilliant ability to stage the production with perfect timing and maximizing the human emotions of the actors. Kudos to staff at Seattle Public Theater for choosing the script by Chloe Moss. She wrote about the effects of incarceration on women so convincingly.
Quotes & Highlights
- "The play is shaped with compassion, but there is never even an echo of special pleading. Ms. Moss’s goal is to convey, in visceral terms, the disorientation of lives resumed after rending, warping interruptions. And you don’t have to have done time to identify with Lorraine and Marie’s addled, anguished sense of time." --<em>New York Times</em>

Special Post-Play discussions on Saturday, May 26 and Sunday, May 27. SPT Artistic Director, Shana Bestock and Director Sheila Daniels lead an illuminating panel discussion with former prison inmates and leaders from the Project IF. These discussions will take place directly after the play.
Project IF has been asking women in prison, “If there was something someone could have said or done that would have changed the path that led you here, what would it have been?” The women’s responses are videotaped, and a team of former inmates, uses the videos in workshops with Seattle's at-risk youth.
Recommended for teens on up.
