Young Frankenstein & Broadway

If “The Producers” was Broadway’s savior, one can only imagine what a more popular Mel Brooks vehicle could do for the Great White Way.

Brooks recently told Reuters that a musical version of “Young Frankenstein” is under way, and he’s already written a song for the character Frau Blucher, who will sing “He vus my boyfriend!” as a coda.

A 90-minute version of “The Producers” debuts at the Paris Las Vegas casino late this summer, and a box set of eight Mel Brooks movies was recently issued on DVD.
