>I mentioned a couple of weeks ago that the new Mel Brooks musical, Young Frankenstein, was set for tryouts in Seattle and will open in New York in November. (I was especially interested because my old friend Fred Applegate is in the show.)
I knew right away that there was buzz building because I started getting a lot of hits here from people looking for information about the show. Lots of hits.
Now the show has opened in Seattle and it sounds fantastic. A reader, Brian Elslip, left this comment:
My Wife and I saw the show last night and are still buzzing from it this morning. It’s a wonderful, magical experience when all of a show’s elements come together like this, the writing, set design, score, sound effects and the acting all were phenomenal. I plan to go again before the show leaves town, kudos to the cast and crew!
and Fred also left a comment about how wonderful the reaction has been.
If you live in the Northwest, better check it out fast or your next chance will be on Broadway!
