It’s ALIVE! Comedy genius Mel Brooks’ Broadway musical Young Frankenstein comes to London

Mel Brooks and Susan Stroman, creators of the world-wide hit The Producers bring their re-imagined Broadway production of Mel Brooks’ Young Frankenstein to the London stage.

Featuring  new material and hit songs “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!

Young Frankenstein The Musical will run from 28 September 2017 until 25 August 2018 at the Garrick Theatre.

WHAT’S THE STORY?

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 creature — but not without scary and quite often hilarious complications.

WHO’S IN IT? YOUNG FRANKENSTEIN CAST

Hadley Fraser (The Winter’s Tale, City of Angels) leads the cast as Young Frankenstein, with Lesley Joseph (Bird’s of a Feather) playing Frau Blucher.

The cast also features Dianne Pilkington (Wicked), Summer Strallen (Top Hat, The Sound of Music) and Patrick Clancy (The Producers, Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat).

CREATIVE TEAM

Written by Mel Brooks and Tom Meehan, with Mel Brooks and Susan Stroman co-directing.

It’s ALIVE. Mel Brooks to bring Young Frankenstein to London
Comedy genius Mel Brooks is to bring his musical Young Frankenstein to the West End stage. Mel Brooks is currently working with long-time collaborator Susan Stroman on re-imagining his Broadway musical Young Frankenstein for the London stage. The musical, aptly name The New Mel Brooks Musical Young Frankenstein opened on Broadway in 2007 to mixed reviews and ran for 485 performances before doing a national US tour. Brooks said 'I really didn't do it the kind of justice I should have when I did it on Broadway about eight years ago,' 'It was a little too big, and a little too much of a musical comedy, instead of the crazy, black-and-white, intense wacky comedy that I created for Gene Wilder and Madeline Kahn.' Written by Brooks and Tom Meehan, the show is loosely based on Mary Shelley's novel — though this time it's old Baron Frankenstein's grandson, an American professor of neurology, who visits the family castle in Transylvania. Brooks and Stroman will co-direct with Brooks concentrating on the comedy and acting and Stroman taking charge of the production numbers. Brooks has penned new material for the creature as he only had 1 number - a big song-and-dance spectacle featuring Irving Berlin's Puttin' On the Ritz - in the original Broadway production. Notoriously known for charging high ticket prices, Brooks has vowed to ensure there will be cheap seats (£25-£35) for young people. Brooks is yet to secure a theatre, however he is looking for something the size of the Prince of Wales. Casting is yet to be announced! BOOKING Book tickets to YOUNG FRANKENSTEIN

In his first-ever solo show in the UK, Mel Brooks Live In London is sure to be chock-full of childhood memories, Hollywood history, unforgettable live music and uproarious laughter. On his London endeavour Brooks said “I am thrilled to bring this introspective retrospective of my life and career to the West End stage. It will be an evening the audience will never forget—whether they want to or not!” One of the few entertainers to earn the Tony, Emmy, Grammy, and Oscar, Mel Brooks illustrious career began in television writing for Sid Caesar’s Your Show of Shows and together with Buck Henry creating the long running comedy TV series Get Smart. He then teamed up with Carl Reiner to write and perform the Grammy-winning 2000 Year Old Man comedy albums & books. Brooks won his first Oscar in 1964 for the animated short The Critic and his second for the screenplay of his first feature film, The Producers in 1968. Many hit comedy films followed including The Twelve Chairs, Blazing Saddles, Young Frankenstein, Silent Movie, High Anxiety, History of the World Part I, To Be or Not to Be, Spaceballs, Life Stinks, Robin Hood: Men in Tights and Dracula: Dead and Loving It. His film production company, produced critically acclaimed films such as The Elephant Man, The Fly, Frances, My Favorite Year and 84 Charring Cross Road. For three successive seasons, 1997-1999 Mel Brooks won Emmy Awards for his role as “Uncle Phil” on the hit sitcom Mad About You. Brooks received three 2001 Tony Awards and two Grammy Awards for The Producers: the New Mel Brooks Musical, which ran on Broadway from 2001 to 2006. He followed that success with The New Mel Brooks Musical Young Frankenstein, which ran on Broadway from 2007 to 2009. In 2009 President Barack Obama presented Mel Brooks with The Kennedy Center Honors, recognizing a lifetime of extraordinary contributions to American culture.
