Young Frankenstein: Monster Smash Or Monster Mash?
By Broadway Magazine
Mel Brooks has long been a maverick in comedy, and the Broadway musical comedy Young Frankenstein is his latest offering. Though Brooks may be esteemed as a statesman of comedy, he continues to create rather than ruminate on a career of comic innovation.

The new Mel Brooks' monster musical-comedy Young Frankenstein is the Broadway musical adaption of the exceptionally funny 1974 film, which starred Gene Wilder. The Broadway musical tells the story of a successful brain surgeon who inherits a castle in Transylvania and a family legacy for creating creatures.
