The New Mel Brooks Musical: Young Frankenstein
October 10 – 27, 2019
Music, Book & Lyrics by Mel Brooks & Thomas Meehan 
IT’S ALIVE! Audiences have been screaming that line since the famous Mel Brooks/ Gene Wilder movie, Young Frankenstein, opened to critical and box office acclaim in 1974. This wild romp of a musical takes us from Transylvania to New York, as Dr. Frederick Frankenstein, that’s Fronk-en-steen to you, finds he has inherited the family business. Cue boats, trains and even a hay ride to take us to that infamous laboratory where the Monster is born! With the help of a hunchbacked sidekick, Igor, a leggy lab assistant, Frederick finds himself in the shoes of his ancestors. The show includes  memorable songs like the rendition of the Irving Berlin hit “Puttin’ On the Ritz”, choreography and some Broadway stage magic. Don’t miss this monster hit!
