It’s Not Just Hollywood: Young Frankenstein, The Musical
If you’re like us, and you are reading this so you must be close, you likes you some Young Frankenstein. Well, if you happen to also like musical theater, you can know combine your two likes into one tasty Broadway treat, Young Frankenstein: The Musical.
Oh my. I guess the success of Spamalot (which is now playing in Houston till June 17th) will now lead to Broadway foregoing any original plays, and instead re-hashing old comedy movies into musicals. Which may not be a bad thing. YF is a funny movie, and Mel Brooks will be working on the production, although, not being a theater/musical person, I have no idea what a ‘book’ is in this context, analogous to a screenplay? Would that be a a playplay?
Anyway, there’s a lot of star power behind this production (well, Broadway star power) which may or may not be a bad thing. I hope its good, even though I’ll probably never see it.
Personally, I’m holding out for Schindler’s List: The Musical.
