''When [the movie] Young Frankenstein opened on the big screen in 1974, it was not only absolutely hysterical…the monochromatic look reminded me of those 1930s-era horror movies,'' Landon says. While the stage play's scenes and dialogue are essentially the same as in the classic 1974 movie, a musical score, also written by Brooks, supplements the show. ''The most challenging visual element is bringing the monochromatic look and feel of the movie to the stage — or at least attempting to do so for the more classic scenes,'' Landon says.
