The topic title says it says it all.

Wondering if anybody has done this exact version. Any details would be appreciated.

I subbed on the Broadway run and I've played the current licensed version. The West End version calls for flugelhorn, wondering if there are any other things of note I should be aware of.

Tia!

Sorry, Tim; I was hoping I could help you for once, instead of the other way around. My copy is the original Besterman version...

That's "Frahnken-steen".

Tim,

Finally able to return the favor after reviewing many of your show notes before getting the book for a show. In your own well established style (albeit not as thorough):

Just to double check this is the right book you're looking for, this is from the MTI "Young Frankenstein (West End Version)" book:

2 Trumpet Parts
Bb and Flugel for Trumpet 1, just Bb for Trumpet 2
Trumpet 2 has some independent parts from Trumpet 1

One 2 measure change from Trumpet to Flugel in "Transylvania Mania"

Mutes: St Mute, Cup Mute, Plunger, Solotone, Harmon w/stem, Harmon T.O. (tube out)

Most mute changes are reasonable, there's a 1 measure change from cup to open in "Transylvania Mania", everything else is 2 measures or more of time.

Range: Numerous Cs, C#s, Ds, one E in "Transylvania Mania" (gliss from a B)

Lots of distinct articulations throughout, including many "growl" and flutter tongue plunger licks.

Typical notation for segues, etc but no on-stage dialog cues.

Hope that helps!
