The classic Mel Brooks movie, "Young Frankenstein," is alive — and it's headed to the main stage at the Lied Center for Performing Arts for two performances on Jan. 21. Performances are at 3 and 7 p.m.
A monstrously good time is in store at this spectacular new stage production, winner of the 2008 Outer Critics Circle Award and the Broadway.com Audience Award for best musical.
The performance includes favorite moments from the classic film, plus brand-new, show-stopping numbers for the stage, including "Transylvania Mania," "He Vas My Boyfriend" and "Puttin' on the Ritz."
This wickedly inspired re-imagining of the Frankenstein legend follows bright young Dr. Frankenstein (that's Fronkensteen) as he attempts to create a monster — but not without scary and hilarious complications. The (abnormal?) brain behind the laughter belongs to Brooks, the mad genius and three-time Tony winner who wrote the music and lyrics and co-wrote the book-along with his record-breaking team from "The Producers"; five-time Tony-winning director and choreographer Susan Stroman and three-time Tony-winning writer Thomas Meehan.
Tickets to the Lied Center performances are $49, $54 and $59, and may be purchased online at http://www.liedcenter.org, by calling 402-472-4747 or in person at the Lied Center box office.
