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



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”

  1. 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,


  2. 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.
