Show & Venue Information

Age Restriction: Parental guidence recommended.

It has been over four decades since audiences first witnessed Mel Brooks’ film Young Frankenstein and it has since become a big part of popular culture, attracting fans worldwide. But 2017 allows those in the capital to delve into the work once again as the hit stage musical finally makes its way to the West End by playing the Garrick Theatre. Boasting Brooks’s music and lyrics and a book by him and Thomas Meehan the show will undoubtedly be a big talking point in Theatreland

Mel Brooks’ classic story introduces us to the grandson of Victor Von Frankenstein, Frederick, who lives in the United States and tries to live down the reputation of his famous grandfather. So whilst he gets annoyed at people asking him about the family legacy he soon realises that it might be his own legacy as well when he discovers he has inherited the property in Transylvania. When he inspects the place he realises he is more interested in his grandfather’s experiments than he first realised!

It is one of the best known horror spoofs of all time and this stage musical adaptation heads to the West End with an array of musical numbers that are bound to put smiles on faces.

But then that’s what they will be expecting with the work of Mel Brooks, who has made a career of making people laugh and providing works that have become a big part of pop culture. From Spaceballs to The Producers, his work has been inspirational and unmissable around the world.

Amongst them is Young Frankenstein and it runs at the West End’s Garrick Theatre from 2017.
