Pittsburgh Musical Theater continues on with their “One sensational season” as they welcome the award-winning Mel Brooks musical, “Young Frankenstein”. The comedy was inspired by Brooks’ film, “Young Frankenstein”, which premiered in 1974, and was named one of the top 50 comedies of all-time.
The musical adaptation of the picture debuted in 2007, and closed in 2009, but has seen several revivals over the past 5 years. And now, under the direction of Executive Artistic Director, Colleen Petrucci, the talented PMT team will make their mark on the classic musical numbers like “Putting on The Ritz”, and “Life, Life”.
Trey Compton will take on the role of young Frederick Frankenstein, and The Burgh Vivant’s Brian Edwards will add to his theater resume as he reprises Victor Frankenstein. The always electric Tim Hartman will play the monster.
Hartman is sure to put on a memorable performance, as he tends to gravitate towards verbosely entertaining, larger-than-life characters, never leaving the audience lacking in the laughter department.
PMT recently released a parody video with Hartman that lends to the antics that will soon follow on stage.
Other cast members include Lara Hayhurst (Inga), Quinn Shannon Patrick (Igor), Tammy Townsen (Frau Brucher), and Andrea Weinzirel (Elizabeth).
“Young Frankenstein” runs March 5-15th. For ticket information, visit pittsburghmusicals.com
