“Put Ze Candle...Back.” This iconic line from Young Frankenstein, Mel Brooks’ 1974 classic comedy (filmed in black and white), is but one of countless moments in the parody above all parodies. Our musical version is not black and white... it’s filled with color. Colorful characters, and colorful language--a staple of parodies. Think of the timeless tale of Frankenstein told in the most ridiculous, please don’t take it seriously way, stuffed with double entrendres of the sexual variety and I can’t believe I’m laughing at this outdated joke moments. Dr. Frankenstein (er, Fronk-en-steen) inherits a castle, builds a monster, man meets girl (“Roll in the Hay”), monster destroys the town (“He’s Loose”) and learns to tap dance (“Puttin’ on the Ritz”). Some of the jokes may go over the heads of young children, but the PG-13 Parental Guidance Recommended rating is well warranted due to the adult humor. If you know and love Mel Brooks (The Producers, High Anxiety), there will be no surprises. If not, do a little research before purchasing so you don’t want to Put Ze Ticket...Back!
