The Producers, by the comedic genius Mel Brooks, was one of the Waterfront’s biggest hits, drawing huge numbers of tourists. Next season we present Brooks’ follow-up to Producers – the stage version of his iconic parody of the horror film genre, Young Frankenstein.
All the iconic characters are included: Dr. Frankenstein, Igor (or Eye-gor, as the character insists), Frau Blucher and of course, the Monster. The production will have a cast of 16 to perform such numbers as “Please Don’t Touch Me,” “He Vas My Boyfriend” and a huge production tap number of “Puttin’ On The Ritz.”
This large and technically-challenging musical will build on the Waterfront’s reputation for giving these Broadway musicals a spectacular showing. We have already rented a costume package that is based on the original period designs. Mr. Brooks and director, Susan Stroman, have recently re-worked and streamlined the material for London’s West End, where the show is currently a huge smash hit. The Waterfront will adapt this new, critically-praised version.
