Two Frankenstein musicals opened on consecutive days last November, in New York.
The boisterous, monster-sized Young Frankenstein is still going, although cast salaries had to be slashed and the originally stratospheric ticket prices were revised downward. Its serious counterpart played out its initial month-long run and closed. A mooted tour never materialized.
Now, the “world premiere” recording of Frankenstein, A New Musical, featuring the original cast, is being released and will be available for digital download on Amazon and iTunes as of September 2.
You can sample the music and order the CD on the show’s excellent website, which is loaded with photographs, reviews and lots of good information.
