I was so looking forward to seeing Roger Bart as Fredrick Frankenstein. He caught my attention when I saw him as Carmen Ghia in the Producers the month it opened. I've been following his career ever since. I was in the audience of Frankenstein last night Thursday Oct 25, 2007. Because of Rogers absence, I'll have to see the show again when he returns. Decades ago during THE PAJAMA GAME Shirley Maclaine stepped into the understudy STEAM HEAT role, it made her a broadway/ movie star. It is unlikely the same thing will happen with Barts understudy.
