A wickedly inspired re-imagining of the Frankenstein legend based on Mel Brooks’ classic comedy masterpiece, the story follows bright young Dr. Frankenstein as he at­tempts to complete his grandfather’s masterwork and bring a corpse to life. Together with his oddly shaped and endearing helper Igor and 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.
With such memorable tunes as “The Transylvania Ma­nia,” “He Vas My Boyfriend” and “Puttin’ On The Ritz,” The New Mel Brooks Musical “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.” Reference: http://www.youngfrankensteinthemu­
