My family attended the production of Young Frankenstein, a theatrical performance produced by the Beaumont Community Players in Beaumont, Texas. This theatrical piece was chosen as a critique because the children's best friend performed in Young Frankenstein. It was an unusual and interesting performance, but this was performed very well by the cast.

Young Frankenstein is a theatrical musical based on the Frederick Frankenstein and he is ashamed to be a Frankenstein, insisting that his name to be pronounced "Frankenstein" and that he is not a madman but, rather, a scientist. He then lectures his students about the greatest mind of science ("The Brain"). After learning that he has inherited his grandfather's castle in Transylvania, he is forced to resolve the issue of the property. As Elizabeth Benning, Frederick's fiance, sees him off, it is clear that their relationship is far from physical as Elizabeth enumerates all the lustful situations from which she is abstaining ("Please Don't Touch Me").

The set design is extremely effective, and the black cut out background suggests turrets and a lighted outline added another layer. The sky, with stars and moon, is lovely in its simplicity. Lots of lightening adds to the show's gloomy atmospheric feel. From the contemporary but cartoony set to the black-and-white color scheme that encompasses everything. This musical takes a lot of material directly from the movie, and a lot of the humor is sophomoric, but it is deftly delivered.

It was one of the best shows ever seen, so funny, the place was screeching with laughter. The cast was fantastic, especially Igor, and the blind hermit, though the housekeeper, the monster, young Frankenstein and his fiance were also brilliant. The family enjoyed it so much, it was so funny, any individual will want a good laugh than this is the show for them to watch, it will be a great evening! The overall rating on the set design was actually pretty good very small mistakes but not noticeable unless an individual is there to critique it.

The cast size was around twenty-five people and the costumes were amazing. The family enjoyed how every individual costume was unique, but Elizabeth's red dress was very classy and sexy. The other individuals in the play had a mixture of a German Austrian attire, scientific lab coats, and the cool monster costume that was also a hit. Another cast member that stood out was Inga the lab assistant that wore a very sexy and seductive fitted lab coat and dress that could remind an individual of Dorothy from the Wizard of Oz which was very cute.

The actors during this performance were hilarious from the start, great singing, dancing and the sets were great. Particularly enjoyed the dancing where the lights flashed, and the dancers were in the air at the moment of the flash. The cast performance was fantastic, especially Igor, and the blind hermit, though the housekeeper, the monster, Young Frankenstein and his fiance were also brilliant. What a great way to adapt the old classic movie. Every bit is enjoyable, great talented artists and excellent transition into musical format. If any individual liked the movie, then do not miss this show.

Young Frankenstein was an amazing theatrical show that lasted about 2  hours to watch, they family honestly enjoyed every bit of it. The family wasn't sure of the outcome on how it was going to turn out because not knowing much about it and have not seeing the film, but they were pleasantly surprised. The acting was great, the songs were great and the whole show was really funny. Upon leaving my family asked when they could go back to watch it again and indeed, they sure did, the family watched it twice.
