About Young Frankenstein
Mel Brooks sealed his place in comedy history with his 1974 film Young Frankenstein. A collaboration written with Gene Wilder, the black & white movie parodied horror films to grand effect with Wilder portraying a mad scientist.
Now, Young Frankenstein has been adapted into a Broadway musical, much like another Brooks' project, The Producers. To pen the book with him, Brooks turned to Thomas Meehan who also worked on the wonderfully successful adaptation of The Producers. Brooks managed the Young Frankenstein music and lyrics on his own.
Young Frankenstein's musical plot stayed fairly true to the film with only minor changes. Dr. Frederick Frankenstein, embarrassed by his surname, pronounces it "Fronkensteen" and insists he is merely a scientist. When he gets word that he has inherited his grandfather's Transylvania castle, Frederick heads over to settle matters.
There, he meets Igor (pronounced "Eye-gore") the hunchback who hopes the good doctor will continue the reanimation work begun by his grandfather. Frederick concedes and sets to work on bringing his monster to life.
Work on the production began in the spring of 2006 with the first reading taking place in October of that year directed by Susan Stroman. Then, the team headed to the Paramount Theatre in Seattle, Washington, for auditions, rehearsals, and previews in the summer of 2007.
After about a month of previews in New York, November 8, 2007 marked Young Frankenstein's opening on Broadway at the Foxwoods Theatre. Stroman, once again, directed and choreographed the staging. Some 484 shows later, it closed on January 4, 2009.
Robin Wagner served as set designer, William Ivey Long as costume designer, and Doug Besterman as orchestrator.
The original Broadway class included Roger Bart as Frederick Frankenstein, Megan Mullally as Elizabeth, Christopher Fitzgerald as Igor, Sutton Foster as Inga, Andrea Martin as Frau Blücher, Shuler Hensley as The Monster, and Fred Applegate as Inspector Kemp.
Kristin Chenoweth had been slated for the role of Elizabeth, but had to duck out due to her work on Pushing Daisies. Cloris Leachman had hoped to reprise her portrayal of Frau Blücher, a role she filled in the film. Various concerns led to Brooks not casting her, though he reconsidered after seeing her on Dancing with the Stars. The show closed, though, before she could step in.
Decca Broadway released the original cast album in late 2007. It peaked at number three on the Billboard Top Cast Album chart.
On September 29, 2009, a touring company launched in Providence, Rhode Island at the Providence Performing Arts Center. Both Bart and Hensley reprised their roles for the initial tour. A second tour staging was mounted on September 30, 2011 in Utica, New York.
