In the Neighborhood Acting Company’s (NAC) fall production of Mel Brook’s Young Frankenstein, there is delightful evidence that life imitates art. The story centers around Dr. Frederick Frankenstein, the grandson of the infamous Dr. Victor Frankenstein. In the November musical, Dr. Dan Miga portrays the young Frankenstein. In real life, Dan is a pediatric cardiologist at the Children’s Heart Center at the University of Rochester Medical Center.
Dan first became interested in theater through his daughter. He and she then became involved in local theater groups throughout the Rochester area, and he eventually caught the acting bug. As he says, “Some people golf; I enjoy acting. It’s a great stress reliever.” He brings his scripts to work and, when not with patients, he memorizes his lines, and he has also been known to practice his dance steps in his office. Dan’s family and friends support his acting efforts, and enjoy attending his shows.
