The electrifying musical adaptation of Mel Brooks’ monstrously funny cult comedy film is marvelously good entertainment. Frederick Frankenstein, with the help of a hunchbacked side-kick, Igor, and a leggy lab assistant, Inga, finds himself in the mad scientist shoes of his ancestors. “It’s alive!” he exclaims as he brings to life a creature to rival his grandfather’s. Eventually, of course, the monster escapes and hilarity continuously abounds.
