Musical Theatre West to Present YOUNG FRANKENSTEIN, 11/117
Musical Theatre West at the Richard and Karen Carpenter Performing Arts Center in Long Beach, CA proudly opens its 61st season with Mel Brooks' Young Frankenstein, a musical comedy from the creative team of the 12-time Tony Award winning smash hit The Producers. The production, with music and lyrics by Brooks and a book by Thomas Meehan, marks the regional theater premiere of this hilariously tuneful show based on the 1974 smash hit film Young Frankenstein which was a wickedly inspired re-imagining of the Mary Shelley classic from the comic genius of Mel Brooks.
Having first debuted on Broadway in November of 2007, MTW's Young Frankenstein is scheduled to be presented November 1 - 17, 2013 for 13 performances. Saturday, November 2nd has been designated as the show's official opening night. Young Frankenstein is scientifically-proven, monstrously good entertainment...and the only place you'll witness a singing and dancing laboratory experiment in the largest tuxedo ever made!
