Young Frankenstein Mel Brooks’ YOUNG FRANKENSTEIN comedy musical based on the Oscar-nominated hit movie will run in London's West End at the Garrick Theatre from Thursday 28th September.

The production will open at the Theatre Royal Newcastle where it will run from 26th August-9th September 2017.

Young Frankenstein  is  the wickedly inspired re-imagining of the Mary Shelley classic, when esteemed New York brain surgeon Professor Frederick Frankenstein inherits a castle and laboratory in Transylvania from his deranged genius grandfather Victor Von Frankenstein . But does he continue to run from his family’s tortured past or  stay in Transylvania to carry on his grandfather’s mad experiments bringing the dead back to life while falling in love with his sexy lab assistant Inga?

YOUNG FRANKENSTEIN is produced by Mel Brooks, Michael Harrison and Fiery Angel. Based on the 1974 film and co-written with Thomas Meehan, Brooks will once again collaborate with Broadway director and choreographer Susan Stroman for this  new production, bringing his and Gene Wilder’s classic movie to life on stage.
