"Young Frankenstein?"#1
Posted: 11/8/07 at 4:27pm
Can anybody help me out?

There's this show called "Young Frankenstein." I believe it's a musical, but I can't seem to find anything on line about it.

No articles or ads, or anything...

Silly Besty. You're spelling it wrong.

It's "Young Franck: Ben Stein," the story of Belgian composer Cèsar Franck as portrayed by everyone's favorite monotone right-wing hack.

Or maybe it's "Jung, Franck and Stein" and is a fabled account of a meeting between the three.

Somebody must know SOMETHING about it.

I mean, it's a little obscure, I admit... but we have some true experts lurking on this site.

I figured one of you had heard of it. Has it opened yet?

Or maybe it closed already?

Oh, THANKS, Calvin.

There's been so little seen or heard about it, I must have gotten my facts wrong.

Thanks!

It's sad to me when a Broadway show has no advertising budget.

Did you guys know that in France, the movie was called "Frankenstein Junior"?

I have no idea why I think that's funny, but I do.

I guess that's better than "Li'l Franky."



...or "Frankenbabies."

re: 'Young Frankenstein?'

It appears not all is lost in the ad budget. They've apparently created some sort of sugar-coated breakfast product to boost interest. It's a cross promotion with "Legally Blonde." Orfeh sure looks funny without her wig!

eta: crap, I'll try a new image!

So obscure the photo won't show up, Cal.



Hey, has anybody else seen the poster artwork yet? I wonder what it looks like.

Wow, so they must have poured all their ad budget into that breakfast cereal!

Interesting strategy.

Too bad nobody here, I mean on a BROADWAY SITE for Chrissake, will know anything about this new show, or when it opens... or what the posters look like...

Seriously, tell me, why are they spending so much on advertising? Are they trying to sell as many tickets as possible before the reviews come out???? Think they're a little worried?

I don't know but I wish they would lay off the ads, my computer freezes every single time I try to go to this site.

Taz,

The Al Franken show tells about his college days when he drank a lot of beer. re: 'Young Frankenstein?'
