It's alive! From the creators of the record-breaking Broadway sensation, The Producers, comes this electrifying new musical comedy monster that will leave you in stitches. The comedic genius, Mel Brooks, adapts his legendary funny film into a brilliant stage creation – Young Frankenstein! Grandson of the infamous Victor Frankenstein, Frederick Frankenstein inherits his family's estate in Transylvania. With the help of a hunchbacked sidekick and a leggy lab assistant, Frederick finds himself in the mad scientist shoes of his ancestors.
