ABSTRACT
The article features actor Roger Bart and his role as Dr. Frankenstein in Mel Brook's Broadway production "Young Frankenstein." According to Bart, the play is a horror musical. It is the story Mary Shelley wrote about what happens when a man plays God. His character takes a journey from being a man ruled by intellect to being a man ruled by emotion as well as intellect. His love for Inga and his creation of the monster have changed him. One challenge he faces is the comparisons to Gene Wilder's performance in the film.
