Young Frankenstein - ALIVE in Durham!
by Shane Hudson - Dec 10, 2010

BWW Reviews: YOUNG FRANKENSTEIN in Cincinnati
by Jill Siekman - Nov 22, 2010

Now playing at the Aronoff Center for the Arts: Mel Brooks' Young Frankenstein. While the orchestra (which sounded phenomenal) played the overture, an image with the castle and the words 'Young Frankenstein,' in a font reminiscent of a type you'd see on an old movie, was projected on a screen. The image set the tone for the musical, based on Brooks' classic vaudevillian comedy, and it plays out much like the movie. (more...)

Mel Brooks has taken a giant tumble off the mountaintop on which he stood following the success of THE PRODUCERS. To think about it, THE PRODUCERS revealed itself not to be one of the greats as soon as Nathan Lane and Matthew Broderick departed. Performers mean an awful lot in a Broadway musical. It seems the Brooks machine is willing to trade gifted star performers (they got to be stars for a reason, you know) for a more immediate return of profit. Seems to be unwise for them, and certainly not a reason for the audience to rejoice. But, on to the show. (more...)
