News trickles out as the monster approaches Broadway.
When word of Mel Brooks's Broadway rendition of YOUNG FRANKENSTEIN first hit the Net, the claims were specific: opening for Halloween. Now the mentions are vaguer, although we do get an occasional hint at the cast -- like today's hunch that Sutton Foster is leaving The Drowsy Chaperone to be Inga. Megan Mullally, from Will & Grace, as Elizabeth; Brian D'Arcy James as Frahnkenshteen; and Shuler Hensley as the monster, according to recent Playbills online.
I noticed the last time I watched it that by the end of the film, the Gene Wilder character could care less how his name is pronounced. He has embraced his past and his monster -- and, besides, his endowments have grown tremendously.
