Get Your Dancing Monster Fix with Young Frankenstein 

Thursday, Jan. 26

Local theater lovers don't need to travel to the Big Apple to get their Broadway fix. Broadway will return to Boise on Thursday, Jan. 26, with the musical adaptation of Mel Brooks' 1974 film Young Frankenstein.

This theatrical rendition stays true to the film, while adding a flare that can only be found on the stage. For those unfamiliar with the story of Young Frankenstein, don't be spooked by the title. Rather than trying to evoke fear, this account of the familiar figure parodies the horror genre, infusing the tale with song and dance.

After opening on Broadway in 2007, the musical had a two-year run before transitioning into a traveling show. Young Frankenstein is now on its second national tour, which includes Boise this time.

Sure, you might not think a monster pieced together from various body parts could cut a rug, but you'd be surprised by just how light those platform boots really are—that is unless he actually has two left feet.
