Highlights From the Drury Lane Theatre's Young Frankenstein
An adaptation of his classic 1974 comedy starring Gene Wilder, Marty Feldman, Peter Boyle and Madeline Kahn, Mel Brooks' musical Young Frankenstein follows Dr. Frederick Frankenstein (Devin DeSantis) as he seeks to complete his grandfather's life mission — to bring the dead back to life. Directed by William Osetek, the production features Jeff Dumas as Igor, Travis Taylor as the Monster, Allison Still as Inga and Paula Scrofano as Frau Blucher. Performances run through March 16 at the Drury Lane Theatre in Oakbrook Terrace, IL.
Holed up in a seedy motel on the edge of the Mojave Desert, two former lovers unpack the deep secrets and dark desires of their tangled relationship, passionately tearing each other apart. Led by director Daniel Aukin (Back Back Back at MTC, 4,000 Miles), Tony winner Nina Arianda (Venus in Fur at MTC, Born Yesterday) and Sam Rockwell (A Behanding in Spokane, The Way Way Back) bring an explosive intensity to Sam Shepard’s (Buried Child, True West) landmark myth of the new Wild West.
