About this show

Mel Brooks is at it again, following up his smash hit The Producers with the stage adaptation of Young Frankenstein, playing The Buell Theatre. The classic movie is ALIVE in a spectacular new production, winner of the 2008 Outer Critics Circle Award and the Audience Award for Best Musical. A sensational cast delivers all the classic moments from the film, plus brand-new show-stopping numbers for the stage, including "Transylvania Mania," "He Vas My Boyfriend" and "Puttin' on the Ritz." This wickedly inspired re-imagining of the Frankenstein legend follows bright young Dr. Frankenstein (that's Fronkensteen) as he attempts to create a monster--but not without scary and hilarious complications. The brains behind the laughter is mad genius and three- time Tony-winner Mel Brooks himself--who wrote the music and lyrics and co-wrote the book--along with his record-breaking team from The Producers, five-time Tony-winning director and choreographer Susan Stroman and three-time Tony-winning writer Thomas Meehan.
