It's ALIVE! Only an abnormal brain from a mad genius like Mel Brooks could reanimate this 1974 film favorite as a Broadway smash, by surgically attaching show-stopping staging to a hysteria-inducing score. Drawing loosely (and we use the term "loosely" loosely) upon the Mary Shelley classic, Dr. Frankenstein (that's "Fronk-en-steen"!) inherits a Transylvanian castle prime for monster-making. Back along for the wild ride is that irresistibly deranged cast of characters, including Frau Blücher, hunchback Igor (that's "Eye-gor"!) and ravishing lab assistant Inga, as well as the very best of the demented rest.
