Young Frankenstein Musical Opens in Seattle, Ore.

“Roll, roll, roll en zee hay.” For some reason, that’s one of my favorite quotes from the 1974 Mel Brooks film Young Frankenstein. Well this funny, funny film is now a musical.

“The New Mel Brooks Musical Young Frankenstein” will open for its World Premiere, pre-Broadway presentation, at The Paramount Theater in Seattle, Ore., on Aug. 7, and run through Sept. 1.

The production team includes Mel Brooks (book, music and lyrics), Thomas Meehan (book), Susan Stroman (director and choreographer), Robin Wagner (set design) and William Ivey Long (costume design). The stars of the show include Emmy Award-winning Megan Mullally (Will and Grace) and Tony Award winners Sutton Foster (“Thoroughly Modern Millie”), Shuler Hensley (“Oklahoma”) and Roger Bart (“You’re A Good Man Charlie Brown”).

About the author

As The Genre Traveler, Carma Spence loves to view the world through Genre-Coloured glasses. In other words, she sees the world through a lens of science fiction, fantasy, and horror, where trash cans can be Daleks in disguise and neighborhood forests can harbor faeries and sprites. Magic realism is real! Or at least you can choose to see the world that way to add to the fun and awe of life.
