Young Frankenstein Coming to Cobb Energy Centre
Gas South wraps up its 2011-2012 Broadway Series with The New Mel Brooks Musical – Young Frankenstein. You’ll have a monstrously good time at this spectacular production that will be performed Thursday, March 29 thru Sunday, April 1, 2012 at the Cobb Energy Performing Arts Centre. Tickets for YOUNG FRANKENSTEIN are on sale beginning Friday, February 17th, 2012.
Based on the Oscar-nominated smash hit 1974 film, Young Frankenstein is the wickedly inspired re-imagining of the Mary Shelley classic from the comic genius of Mel Brooks. When Frederick Frankenstein, an esteemed New York brain surgeon and professor, inherits a castle and laboratory in Transylvania from his grandfather, deranged genius Victor Von Frankenstein, he faces a dilemma. Does he continue to run from his family’s tortured past or does he stay in Transylvania to carry on his grandfather’s mad experiments reanimating the dead and, in the process, fall in love with his sexy lab assistant Inga? Unfolding in the forbidding Castle Frankenstein and the foggy moors of Transylvania Heights, the show’s raucous score includes “The Transylvania Mania,” “He Vas My Boyfriend” and the unforgettable treatment of Irving Berlin’s “Puttin’ On the Ritz.”
