Mel Brooks has a habit of turning his film successes into stage productions, to much acclaim. Because what classic horror tales really need is more singing and dancing.
IT'S ALIVE! From the creators of the record-breaking Broadway sensation The Producers comes this monster new musical comedy.
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.
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.
