Young Frankenstein

Legendary filmmaker and comedian Mel Brooks (The Producers, Blazing Saddles) brings his iconic monster musical comedy Young Frankenstein to life on stage in an all-singing, all-dancing, all-laughing musical collaboration with Tony-award winning Broadway director and choreographer Susan Stroman. 

Dr. Frederick Frankenstein (Hadley Fraser) - pronounced ‘Fronk-en-steen’ - inherits a castle in Transylvania leading him to fulfil his grandfather's legacy by bringing a corpse back to life. With help and hindrance from hunchback henchman Igor, housekeeper Frau Blucher (Lesley Joseph) & buxom assistant Inga (Summer Strallen), his experiment yields madcap success and monstrous consequences. You’ll be puttin’ on the ritz and reeling in the aisles at the funniest show in town!

    The show was fantastic! And filthy! Not necessarily a bad thing but I was surprised at the amount of innuendo and legs akimbo. I love the movie and the differences between the film and the show were many but it was great! I was happy that some of the funniest lines in the film were kept but not all of them fared well on the stage. I would recommend this show heartily with a “NOT FOR CHILDREN OR SHOCKABLE FOLKS” caveat. Fantastic performance!!

    I think Young Frankenstein was the highlight of my trip to London! I have not laughed so much in AGES!!! The script was amazing, and the acting, singing and dancing were truly fantastic. Hadley Fraser, Cory English, Dianne Pilkington, Summer Strallen and Nic Greenshields each brought something special and amazing to the stage, and Lesley Joseph . . . WOW!!! Her first song, that is something I will never forget!! Sooooo funny!! A fantastic night, thank you!!!!!
