2017-2018 Young Frankenstein2


"It's Alive!" The comedy genius Mel Brooks has adapted his legendary film into a hilariously brilliant stage creation. The grandson of the infamous Victor Frankenstein, Frederick Frankenstein (pronounced "Fronk-en-steen") inherits his family's estate in Transylvania. With the help of a hunchbacked sidekick, Igor, and the lovely lab assistant Inga, Frederick follows in his grandfather s footsteps. "It's Alive!" he exclaims as he gives rise to a creature to rival his grandfather's. And, of course, the monster escapes and hilarity ensues. All the famous lines from the film are there, along with such memorable tunes as "The Transylvania Mania," "He Vas My Boyfriend," and "Puttin' on the Ritz." Young Frankenstein will definitely tickle your funny bone, or at least have you smiling every five seconds!
Disclaimer: This is best enjoyed by teens & adults who enjoy bawdy humor.

"...splashy numbers full of Borscht Belt humor, bawdy double-entendres and plenty of dance breaks."
