"Frankenstein" Scares Laughs into the Crowd
This spring, the Drama Club presented Mel Brooks' Young Frankenstein this weekend, April 11 through April 13. This comedic adaptation of the classic monster had the audience laughing from beginning to end. Joseph Mosinho played the young Doctor Frankenstein, who did not want anything to do with his grandfather's legacy of creating life out of death. When he inherits his family's estate, he returns to Transylvania where he is inspired to create life. Frankenstein creates a monster that is set loose upon the town and must find a way to stop the creature from making the same mistakes his grandfather made.
Mosinho's stellar performance portrayed the shift in his character from shame for his family to proud. The monster was played by Jeremiah Samedi. He added comic relief to the show and stole the stage each time he was present. Javonica Latimore was Inga, Frankenstein's assistant. Her ability to sing is outstanding. The character Elizabeth was played by Zoe Treffinger, who did a convincing rendition of a self-centered aristocrat. Frau Blucher's portrayal by Lunie Leo created a foil for Inga with Leo's stern presence onstage. Lastly, Jesse Gonnerman played Igor. His performance added humor to the scenes from the moment he arrived.
