About Young Frankenstein

Resist the urge to stay inside during these final chilly months of 2017, get out and come alive -like the monsters in the show- and take a trip to the Garrick Theatre to see Mel Brooks’ raucous musical comedy Young Frankenstein brought to life for the first time on the West End stage.

This hotly-anticipated show is an all-singing, all-dancing collaboration with Tony-award winning Broadway director and choreographer Susan Stroman.

Based on the classic 1974 film of the same name starring Gene Wilder, the production comes from the brain of the legendary comedic filmmaker who brought you ‘The Producers’, ‘Blazing Saddles’ and ‘Spaceballs’. So, prepare yourself for lewd humour and tonnes of innuendo, not to mention some pretty racy moments. You’ll probably want to leave the kids at home!

WHO'S IN IT?

Hadley Fraser stars as Dr Frederick Frankenstein, with Ross Noble as his dependable servant Igor. Lesley Joseph will be playing the role of Frau Blucher, with Dianne Pilkington and Summer Strallen both competing for Dr Frankenstein's affection as Elizabeth and Inga, respectively.

What's the story?

Delve into the world of Frederick Frankenstein, a respected New York brain surgeon and professor, who has inherited a castle and laboratory in Transylvania from his deranged genius grandfather, Victor Von Frankenstein.

Will Frederick stay in Transylvania forever and continue to carry out his grandfather’s mad desire to awaken the dead, or will he run from his family’s twisted past?

With hunchback helper Igor, buxom assistant Inga and clingy wife-to-be Elizabeth by his side, Frankenstein’s actions lead to monstrous consequences.
