A to Z Musicals ~ ♬ “Y” is for YOUNG FRANKENSTEIN

y

 

Young Frankenstein, officially known as The New Mel Brooks Musical: Young Frankenstein, is based on the 1974 film of the same name (written by Mel Brooks and Gene Wilder). It’s a parody of the horror film genre, especially the 1931 movie Frankenstein and its 1939 sequel, Son of Frankenstein.

The musical opened on Broadway in November 2007 and closed in January 2009 after 484 performances. The show featured Brian D’Arcy James, Sutton Foster, Megan Mullally, and Kristin Chenoweth (I know, she’s everywhere!).

Here is a clip from the Letterman Show, “Roll in the Hay”

I loved the movie and never even knew they made a musical of it. Very well done!

Mmmmmmmhhhh “Did you just make the yummy sound?”

That clip was intriguing!

Thank you for all your visits and reading and comments. I wasn’t able to track your blog from the main page or your profile, and therefore was unable to return your visits, my apologies! Got here finally because Hilary pasted in your link.

Best wishes always,

I would have loved to have watched this

Though I’ve heard of this one and am familiar with the story, I don’t think I’ve ever even heard any of the music from it.

I didn’t see this one, and I should have. What a delightful choice.

I never knew they did this as a musical. The movie was hilarious.

Wow so entertaining…Never saw that one but it looks really cute. She’s a peach ❤ Nice job once again Martha ❤

OMG. One of the funniest movies (plays) ever! My co workers & I seem to quote from the script every day about some ridiculous thing, roll in the hay being one, Frau Blucker (neigh) another, because we have a consultant named Judy Brucker. damn your eyes…too late…it’s alive! etc etc. Oh Yeah, can’t forget nice knockers.
