A breathtaking theatrical adaptation of the '70s horror comedy flick of the same name, Young Frankenstein is sure to make you double up with laughter. Helmed by five-time Tony winner, Susan Stroman, and supported by a talented cast, this musical is a must-watch!

Why Watch Young Frankenstein

Young Frankenstein first opened in 2007 in Seattle, and after a successful stint at Broadway and two US tours, has been introduced to the UK, although with an entirely new ensemble. A decade later after its premiere, it continues to attract audiences.
Acclaimed for its engaging storyline, often punctuated by the genius of Brooks’ comic touch, the musical has proven to be an instant classic. Hadley Fraser’s performance as Frederick Frankenstein has won accolades from critics and the audiences alike.
Based on the 70s horror-comedy flick of the same name starring Gene Wilder, this hugely successful musical, brought to the stage in collaboration with the acclaimed choreographer and director Susan Stroman, has been praised for capturing the humour and wit that made the original immensely popular.

The Story

Frederick Frankenstein, a successful scientist and Dean at a School of Medicine in New York, tries to distance himself from his surname by insisting that his name is pronounced “Fronkensteen.” The death of his grandfather, the notorious Victor Frankenstein, however, forces him to return to the infamous Transylvania castle. On his arrival, he finds himself amidst strange occurrences. He meets the maniacal hunchback Igor, the pretty assistant Inga, and the mysterious caretaker, Frau Blucher. One event leads to another, and Frederick unwittingly revives a terrifying monster. He finds himself in the middle of an adventure, albeit one with potentially disastrous consequences, and of his own doing.
Follow Frederick’s escapades, as he finally accepts his family name and finds new love, as he journeys on hoping to right the wrongs of his past.
