Grandson of the infamous Victor Frankenstein, Dr Frederick Frankenstein (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, buxom assistant Inga and needy fiancée Elizabeth, his experiment yields madcap success and monstrous consequences.

Legendary filmmaker and comedian Mel Brooks brings his classic monster musical comedy Young Frankenstein to life on stage in an all-singing, all-dancing musical collaboration with Tony-award-winning Broadway director and choreographer Susan Stroman.
