How was your experience?

Clear I hated it I didn't like it It was OK I liked it I loved it!
Maybe seeing the original Mel Brooks film first isn't such a great idea. Energetic, if somehow only moderately funny show. The cast was all fully-invested in their characters (especially all the women), but Gene Wilder's shoes are awfully big to fit into for the actor who plays Herr Doktor Franklenstein... The songs are often fun, however, you won't be humming them out the door. The production has some inventive sets and lighting (the giant Frankenstein monster was brilliant). As usual, the venue is terrific, not a bad seat anywhere. Staff are all very friendly and helpful and nearby residential parking was a snap.
