Young Frankenstein in Broadway YOUNG FRANKENSTEIN
UpStage Theatre
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 an energetic cast and hilarious, catchy tunes like "Transylvania Mania," "He Vas My Boyfriend" and "Puttin' on the Ritz," UpStage Theatre's production of Young Frankenstein is scientifically proven to be a horrifically good time

Next to Normal in Broadway NEXT TO NORMAL
Music Box Musicals
One of Broadway's most-acclaimed modern hits, NEXT TO NORMAL won a trio of Tony Awards in 2009, and even took home the esteemed Pulitzer Prize for its heartbreaking, humorous and unflinchingly authentic look at a modern family struggling with the effects of bipolar disorder. Along with Brian Yorkey's book and lyrics, each character's journey is further punctuated by powerful music from Tom Kitt. Featuring 30 original songs, including "Just Another Day," "You Don't Know" and "Superboy and the Invisible Girl," NEXT TO NORMAL is, in the words of The New York Times, "much more than a feel-good musical; it is a feel-everything musical."
