    Young Frankenstein Opening Night at Proctors – one word – awesome. Incredible stage design, fantastic talented and good looking cast, funny lines and music and perfect timing. It is a top notch performance. I recommend and can’t wait to see “Spaceballs” the musical. Where can I get my front row ticket for that one? My wife would love it.
