Hollywood's king of farce and parody, Mel Brooks, reunited with the creative team behind The Producers for this theatrical re-imagining of Young Frankenstein, the 1974 comedy that took on the classical horror film genre. Fully charged with plenty of cheeky adult humor and sexual innuendo, the musical follows young Dr. Frankenstein (pronounced "Fronk-en-steen") as he tries to complete his grandfather's experiments to reanimate the dead. He's aided by the hunchbacked, bulging-eyed Igor, his curvaceous lab assistant, Inga, and the frightfully eccentric housekeeper Frau Blucher, who together sing a number of catchy tunes like "Transylvania Mania," "He Vas My Boyfriend" and "Puttin' on the Ritz." Debuted in 2007 and on Broadway until 2009, Young Frankenstein comes to the Landis PAC courtesy of Performance Riverside.
This production is recommended for ages 13 and up due to grown-up humor and sexual innuendo.
