Tuesday To-Do: 'Young Frankenstein'

The musical version of Young Frankenstein comes to Robinson Center Music Hall March 6-8.
  • The musical version of "Young Frankenstein" comes to Robinson Center Music Hall March 6-8.

7:30 p.m. Robinson Center Music Hall. $23-$61.

With the success of the Broadway musical adaptation of the Mel Brooks classic "The Producers" in 2001, it was only natural that "Young Frankenstein" would receive similar treatment. Back in 2010, Brooks announced that a musical version of "Blazing Saddles" would be forthcoming, a notion that had been hinted at toward the end of the musical "Young Frankenstein."

So will we eventually see "Robin Hood: Men in Tights" or the unjustly maligned "Spaceballs" brought to Broadway? Also, will we see a film version of the musical version of "Young Frankenstein," as we did with "The Producers?" Only time will tell.

This production runs through March 8, and concludes the 2011-2012 Celebrity Attractions Broadway Season.
