Dee Perry finds out how the Beck Center for the Arts is putting their own spin on the Mel Brooks classic, Young Frankenstein. Meanwhile, Jared Bendis of Case Western Reserve University catches us up on the latest tech news and a local controller at an engineering consulting firm shares the shocking stories of her research into her family tree.
Debra Lape, who works for a Cleveland engineering company, shares her book Looking for Lizzie, in which she details her thorough research of her great-great-grandmother, and tells us what she was surprised to find out.
The Beck Center for the Arts is reviving Mell Brooks’ classic, Young Frankenstein, which can be seen from July 11 through August 17 at 8 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays and 3 p.m. Sundays. Director Scott Spence, Actors Jamie Koeth (Frederick) and Alex Smith (Igor) and Pianist Larry Goodpaster perform a sneak peak live in our Key Bank studio.
