New Release - YOUNG FRANKENSTEIN



Book by MEL BROOKS & THOMAS MEEHAN
Music & Lyrics by MEL BROOKS
Two Acts, Book Musical, Rated M


IT'S ALIVE! From the creators of the record-breaking Broadway sensation,
THE PRODUCERS, comes this monster new musical comedy!


BACKGROUND

With such memorable tunes as "Puttin' On The Ritz," "The Transylvania Mania" and "He Vas My Boyfriend", YOUNG FRANKENSTEIN is scientifically-proven, monstrously good entertainment…and the only place you'll witness a singing and dancing laboratory experiment in the largest tuxedo ever made.

 

STORY

A wickedly inspired re-imagining of the Frankenstein legend based on Mel Brooks' classic comedy masterpiece, the story follows bright young Dr. Frankenstein (that's Fronkensteen) as he attempts to complete his grandfather's masterwork and bring a corpse to life. Together with his oddly shaped and endearing helper Igor (that's Eye-gor), his curvaceous lab assistant Inga, and in spite of his incredibly self-involved madcap fiancé Elizabeth, Frankenstein succeeds in creating a monster -- but not without scary and quite often hilarious complications.


WHAT THE CRITICS SAID


THE NEW YORK TIMES “'Puttin on the Ritz' is TRULY EXHILARATING”. The New York Times
 

LA TIMES "DELIGHTFULLY NUTTY! GLITTERING, BUOYANT FUN that TICKLES ITS AUDIENCE INTO HIGH SPIRITS. CLASSIC BROOKS!" - Charles McNulty, Los Angeles Times
 

NEW YORK POST "THE BROADWAY MUSICAL AT ITS DIZZIEST, GLITZIEST AND FUNNIEST! Mel Brooks and Susan Stroman pull out every stop with DIVINE silliness and a touch of GENIUS. Brooks's lyrics are bright and witty. The book is GREAT." -Clive Barnes, New York Post
 

VARIETY "YOUNG FRANKENSTEIN has no shortage of chuckles and a STELLAR cast. Susan Stroman has crafted zesty numbers. Fitzgerald does the impossible by claiming Igor as his own inexhaustibly comic creation. Shuler Hensley shows off some fine comedy skills. Sutton Foster has BLOSSOMED as Inga. Roger Bart is a skilled musical comedy performer, always fun to watch, whose manic comic energy and commitment never falter." -David Rooney, Variety
