Young Frankenstein Live!: ABC announces new musical event
---------------------------------------------------------
According to Deadline, ABC in partnership with Mel Brooks
has announced its newest live musical event titled Young
Frankenstein Live! which will be based on the 2007
Broadway musical adaptation of Brooks' classic 1974 film
of the same name. The announcement comes two months after
the successful premiere of The Little Mermaid Live! which
was the most-watched TV musical in any network.

Produced by the show's creator Mel Brooks, Young
Frankenstein Live! is expected to premiere this fall. It
will be featuring Brooks' music that he composed from the
Broadway adaptation.

The 1974 comedy horror film was also co-written and
directed by Brooks. Starring Gene Wilder and Peter Boyle,
the film was a parody of Mary Shelley's Frankenstein novel
which follows the story of Dr. Frederick Frankenstein, the
American grandson of Victor Frankenstein, who has inherited
his famous mad scientist grandfather's castle in
Transylvania.

Brook's Young Frankenstein broadway musical was directed 
and choreographed by Susan Stroman. It starred Tony
Award-winning performers Roger Bart, Megan Mullally,
Christopher Fitzgerald, Sutton Foster, and Andrea Martin.
In 2008, it had earned three Tony nominations including Best
Featured Actor and Actress.
