Young FrankensteinDuration tbc

Garrick Theatre, Charing Cross Road, London, United Kingdom WC2H 0HH

Mel Brooks’ Young Frankenstein - the new musical comedy based on the Oscar-nominated smash hit movie - opens in the West End this autumn starring Hadley Fraser, Ross Noble, Lesley Joseph and Summer Strallen.

Young Frankenstein, the wickedly inspired re-imagining of the Mary Shelley classic, tells the story of the Grandson of the infamous Victor Frankenstein, Dr. Frederick Frankenstein (pronounced ‘Fronk-en-steen’), who inherits a castle in Transylvania leading him to fulfill his grandfather's legacy by bringing a corpse back to life. With help and hindrance from hunchback henchman Igor, buxom assistant Inga and needy fiancée Elizabeth, his experiment yields madcap success and monstrous consequences.

Based on the hilarious 1974 film and co-written with Thomas Meehan, Brooks will once again collaborate with Broadway director and choreographer Susan Stroman for this all-singing all-dancing new production, bringing his and Gene Wilder’s classic movie to life on stage.

Age recommendation: Parental Guidance.
