Snacks and drinks available at the Community Center. They are pricey.

Highly recommend Ella's on K street, a short walking distance from the Community Center. No reservations needed if you don't mind sitting at the bar where full service dining options are available. Great cocktails and wine, delicious gourmet food, and awesome service in an elegant atmosphere.

Very fun show! A bit more risque than the movie. Would have given 5-stars but some of the lyrics/spoken word were muffled/incomprehensible. Sadly, we missed some of the jokes.

Spatara and Esquire Grill both have a Theatre Menu with great food...

Loved it!!!!!! The strobe lights added another dimension. Mel Brooks is a genius. While I love sitting in the rear Orchestra I missed not being able to see their facial expressions. It would have made a funny play even funnier. Great casting...continued

Description

The classic Mel Brooks movie is ALIVE…and it’s headed to Sacramento! You’ll have a monstrously good time at this spectacular new production, winner of the 2008 Outer Critics Circle Award and the Broadway.com Audience Award for best musical! Don’t miss the sensational cast delivering all your favorite moments from the classic film, plus brand-new show-stopping numbers for the stage, including “Transylvania Mania,” “He Vas My Boyfriend” and “Puttin’ on the Ritz."

This wickedly inspired re-imagining of the Frankenstein legend follows bright young Dr. Frankenstein (that’s Fronkensteen) as he attempts to create a monster — but not without scary and hilarious complications. The brains behind the laughter is mad genius and three-time Tony winner Mel Brooks himself — who wrote the music and lyrics and co-wrote the book along with his record-breaking team from The Producers: five-time Tony-winning director and choreographer Susan Stroman and three-time Tony-winning writer Thomas Meehan.
