Clive Barnes of the New York Post called Mel Brook’s Young Frankenstein “the Broadway Musical at it’s dizziest, glitziest, and funniest!” With music and lyrics by Mel Brooks and book by Brooks and Thomas Meehan, this electrifying stage adaptation of Brook’s monstrously funny 1974 film will leave you in stitches. Both the film and stage version of Young Frankenstein parody classic horror films of the 30's like Frankenstein and Son of Frankenstein. The story centers around young Frederick Frankenstein ("Fronk-en-STEEN!"), who has inherited his family's estate in Transylvania. With the help of a hunchbacked side-kick and a leggy lab assistant, Frederick finds himself bringing to life a creature to rival his grandfather's—and naturally, hilarity ensues.
