Turning old comedies into musicals: Will “Young Frankenstein” come alive?

Watched Young Frankenstein tonight in anticipation of seeing the musical tomorrow in Seattle. It’ll be interesting to see where the musical numbers are inserted. I just know that there will be a number called He vas my boyfriend, at this point. The movie is 33 years old now. Some of the sight gags are still good (darts scene), but I didn’t find it as funny as I did when I first watched it, quite a few years ago. It’ll be interesting to see how much the musical will stick with the original premise or deviate and build on the story. Mel struck gold with The Producers. Will he repeat the feat with this latest venture? Stay tuned…
