The New Mel Brooks comedy-musical Young Frankenstein opens tonight at the Pantages Theatre for a two-week run. The production is based on Brooks’ re-imagining of his 1974 film, which was itself a re-imagining of the Mary Shelley classic novel. Young Frankenstein features a score of all new songs by composer and lyricist Mel Brooks including "The Transylvania Mania," "He Vas My Boyfriend", "Life, Life" and "Puttin' On the Ritz." Tickets: $25-$80. 8 pm. KNOTTY DERBY
