Young Frankenstein: The Musical

The full cast of Young Frankenstein: The Musical, has been announced! Read this while I scoop my jaw up off the floor...
The production stars Roger Bart (Dr. Frederick Frankenstein), Megan Mullally (Elizabeth), Sutton Foster (Inga), Shuler Hensley (The Monster), Andrea Martin (Frau Blucher), Fred Applegate (Kemp) and Christopher Fitzgerald (Igor).
Oh, yeah. Megan Mullally in the Madeline Kahn role? (Perfect.) Sutton Foster in the Teri Garr role? (Practically drooling--Imagine her doing "Roll, roll, roll in ze hay...") Andrea fucking Martin as Frau Blucher?! (Niiiiigh).

Yes, it's sad that Brooks apparently renegged on a promise to let octogenarian legend Cloris Leachman reprise Blucher (Niiiiigh)... but I'm not gonna let myself feel bad about that right now, cause that cast right there? That's theater queen heaven. (Squee!)
...The show's raucous score includes 'The Transylvania Mania,' 'He Vas My Boyfriend' and the unforgettable treatment of Irving Berlin's 'Puttin' On the Ritz.
Previews begin October 11 at the Hilton Theatre on 42nd.
