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.

The Story

Following the death of mad scientist, Dr. Victor von Frankenstein, his castle is inherited by his American grandson Frederick. However, Frederick does not want to be associated with his grandfather's work, even insisting his name is pronounced "Fronkensteen". Frederick travels to Transylvania to inspect the property, leaving behind his fiancée Elizabeth. Arriving in Transylvania he meets his assistants Igor and Inga and the mysterious Frau Blucher. Despite insisting he has no interest in the re-animation of dead tissue, he resolves to continue his grandfather's experiments after he finds Victor's notes. His activities arouse the suspicion of the villagers and local police chief Inspector Kemp. Thanks to Igor's bungling the experiment goes wrong, with disastrous 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 will make its eagerly-anticipated West End debut in October 2017.
