Young Frankenstein Theatre Show Information
Mel Brooks' musical version of his comedy/horror film transfers to the West End following a successful run on Broadway
About Young Frankenstein
Following on from his success with The Producers, Mel Brooks has adapted another of his films for the stage in Young Frankenstein. Considered by many, including Brooks himself, to be his finest film, Young Frankenstein is a pastiche of 1930's horror films. The film starred Gene Wilder and Peter Boyle and was nominated for several Academy Awards. Brooks now brings his classic monster musical comedy Young Frankenstein to life on the West End stage in an all-singing, all-dancing musical collaboration with Tony-award winning Broadway director and choreographer Susan Stroman.
Grandson of the infamous Victor Frankenstein, Dr. Frederick Frankenstein (pronounced ‘Fronk-en-steen’) inherits a castle in Transylvania. Initially skeptical of his grandfather's work, Frederick eventually decides to fulfill his grandfather's legacy by bringing a corpse back to life. His activities arouse the suspicion of the villagers and local police chief Inspector Kemp. With help and hindrance from henchman Igor, buxom assistant Inga and needy fiancée Elizabeth, his experiment yields madcap success and monstrous consequences..
History of Young Frankenstein
The 1974 film Young Frankenstein was a critical and commercial hit and was voted into Total Film magazine's readers' "List of the 50 Greatest Comedy Films of All Time" as well as winning countless other industry awards. Following the runaway success of The Producers when it was adapted for the stage, the decision to adapt Young Frankenstein was an easy one to take for Mel Brooks and his creative team. Young Frankenstein ran for 485 performances on Broadway and toured twice around the United States to favorable reviews. It made its eagerly-anticipated West End debut in October 2017.
