'Young Frankenstein' is monstrously good fun

A mad scientist, a spooky castle, a hunchbacked assistant and a lumbering monster? Sounds like a recipe for a "Frankenstein" tale. Mix in some jazz hands, kick lines and bawdy humor and you've got Mel Brooks' "Young Frankenstein," Palo Alto Players' latest musical.

The Palo Alto Players hit a home run with this show. The cast is purely brilliant, but the fellow who plays the monster, Michael Reed, is absolutely amazing. A must see!!
