BWW Reviews: YOUNG FRANKENSTEIN in Cincinnati

Now playing at the Aronoff Center for the Arts: Mel Brooks' Young Frankenstein.
The cast was top-notch and made the musical that much more enjoyable. Christopher Ryan as Dr. Frankenstein was perfect, as was Cory English as Igor. Joanna Glushak was a formidable Frau Blucher and both Synthia Link, Dr. Frankenstein's new girlfriend/assistant, and Janine DiVita, as the doctor's fiancee, brought the right amount of femininity to their roles. And Preston Truman Boyd stole the show as The Monster, especially in the much anticipated performance of "Puttin' on the Ritz."
Experiencing the highly talented cast is worth the ticket price alone. And as someone familiar with Mary Shelley's Frankenstein, I found the literary references to be fun and enjoyable with Brooks' comedic twists.
Young Frankenstein will play the Aronoff Center November 16-28, 2010: Tuesday-Friday at 8:00PM, Saturday at 2:00PM and 8:00PM, and Sunday at 1:00PM and 6:30PM. Tickets range in price from $27.50-$66.50 depending on the seat location and performance date. Tickets may be purchased from an authorized ticket agent online at www.broadwayacrossamerica.com or by phone at 1-800-982-2787.
