It's a laugh a minute. Some of the jokes from the original 1974 smash hit film are really, really bad... but in a good way. The characters are hilarious, and the plot is ridiculous. Mel Brooks’ marvellous Young Frankenstein opens for its pre-West End season at the Newcastle Theatre Royal in late summer 2017, in preparation for its grand theatreland opening later the same year.

Young Frankenstein – The story

This fabulous stage show is inspired by the Oscar-nominated film, co-written with Thomas Meehan, who actually wrote the book for the musical stage adaptation in 2007.

When the famous medical lecturer Dr. Frederick Frankenstein, played by Gene Wilder in the film, finds out he's due to inherit his eccentric grandad's Transylvanian estate, he can't resist trying to reproduce the evil man's hideous experiments. His ancestor's servant Igor, brilliantly played by Marty Feldman in the movie, is still in residence. So is the lovely assistant Inga and the terrifying Frau Blücher. Once he's made a monster of his own, new complications arise thanks to his fiancee, who arrives in Transylvania out of the blue...

The show is produced by Mel Brooks, Michael Harrison, Fiery Angel and Hani Farsi, and the brilliant Broadway director and choreographer Susan Stroman is also involved. The all-singing, all-dancing new production is already being eagerly awaited. Watch this space to find out more about the cast when it's announced.

very funny

London Box Office customer

A pleasant, enjoyable musical comedy

Well known story delivered capably and enjoyably by a talented cast.


London Box Office customer

Fantastic!

Funny and energetic! Truly fantastic and entertaining show - it had us rolling with laughter. Just maybe not suitable for under 15's.


London Box Office customer

Fantastic night out

We throughly enjoyed this show, exceeded our expectations and would highly recommend. Some great songs and laughs, brilliant acting. My only criticism would be the theatre itself. I don’t think the air conditioning was working on the night we were there, it was very warm inside the theatre, and I wasn’t the only person who was using his program as a fan, to try and keep cool !! Plenty of places to eat and drink within walking distance from the theatre.


London Box Office customer

A fun night out

Thoroughly enjoyed the show, although I think it might have been the understudy in the central role - but they were still excellent! Very funny in places, some of the songs had me in tears of laughter. When I went there were no plans to do a cast cd, which I thought was a huge shame - I understand there’s since been a change of heart.


London Box Office customer

Two hours of nonstop laughing

Impressive how they transformed the movie on stage , a bit smaller than on broadway but every single minute high entertainment. Fantastic stage set up and great finale. Fantastic cast


London Box Office customer

Good fun show - fantastic production

Our seats were upgraded so we actually sat in the stalls in row f. Close enough to see the full expression on the casts faces but I do like to see a show from above. Really enjoyed the show. All the cast are amazingly talented and it was a typical Mel brooks production - quite bonkers in places but funny and with so many multi talented cast you can’t fail but to enjoy yourself and be in complete awe if their skills. All in all a fabulous evening out.


London Box Office customer

Lovely adaptation

London Box Office customer

Mel Brooks Does it again

You want to experience laughter from 7.30pm to 10.10pm with a 15 minute break to adjust your jaws? Then look no further! Is it PC you bet it’s not! Will it offed snowflakes - absolutely yes! Will those lentil eating Guardian loving liberals wonder what the hell has happened? Yup! Every minute of it! In the days when it’s an offence to give your seat up on a train to a woman, this is a throwback to when comedy was real, lighthearted and when it left you happy! Brilliant cast, Igor magnificent! The monster - perfect facial expressions, even Frankenstein himself belted out his voice fantastically! And the housekeeper well she’ll frighten any runner at Ascot if her names mentioned! Go and enjoy Mel Brooks the man who links humour across the Atlantic and the years!


London Box Office customer

Funny, dynamic and a bit naughty

London Box Office customer

funny as f...

I can't believe that some people gave this show like 2 stars?! You must be old grumpy fart to not like it, literally, the whole theatre has been laughing. Ok, the humour was a bit cheap in some parts but overall I enjoyed the show a lot. This is no.2 for me after the book of Mormon in the west end in term of lough level.


London Box Office customer

2nd time in 5 months

I saw Young Frankenstein on a business trip last November and enjoyed it so much I brought my wife and daughter while on vacation in March. Somehow I missed it in NY - I'm not sure how that happened as I booked tickets to the Producers when they first went on sale in spring 2001 and managed to buy tickets for 9-11 and then managed to change then while Lane and Broderick were still performing. So I have made it up to Mel Brooks and he delivered in spades. This is an excellent show with a great cast. It remains one of the funniest comedies of all times on the screen or in the theater. So what if you start to laugh before all the punch lines. It just makes the laughter last longer. Frau Blucher!!!!!


London Box Office customer

Mel would be proud

Funny, true to the original adaptation. My Polish partner loved it and she has never seen the film


London Box Office customer

Don’t miss it

London Box Office customer

Fun filled evening

What an unexpected evening From the beginning until the end it was full of laughter and great entertainment.


London Box Office customer

Absolutely hilarious

Cheeky production, the actors having great rapport with the audience. I'm still not sure if the giggling and goings in between them was stage managed or spontaneous but it was hilarious either way.


London Box Office customer

Great fun

I loved the original film and wasn’t expecting the show to reach that level, but I was pleasantly surprised. The musical numbers and dancing were new, and very good, particularly in the second half. And even though the lines from the film were repeated almost word for word, there was delicious anticipation of what was coming, and I still laughed out loud. It was wonderful to watch the actors responding to feedback from the audience, enjoying themselves as much as we were. Brilliant. Well done, Mel Brooks and all involved in the production.


London Box Office customer

Creative must see!

London Box Office customer

Laugh a minute

Fantastic night of comedy.


London Box Office customer

Loved the film, the show a bit less so

A bit Ho-hum for me although the 'putting on the Ritz' section is wonderful and Leslie Joseph was fun and the rest of the cast gave it the beans...the show probably compares unfavourably with the Book of Mormon which we'd watched the week beforehand. The seats were bang in the centre toward the back but the low hanging ceiling made you feel like you were missing half the upper set design, something that we should have been told before booking tbh. The couple behind us were having the same conversation too so it wasnt just us Sorry Mel, one of my faves turned out a bit 6/10


London Box Office customer

Great Fun

London Box Office customer

London Box Office customer

fantastic

a great adaptation of the film. the casting was excellent and the songs were brilliant.the show was very funny from start to finish and at times my laughter lasted minutes. i would see it again and i have recommended the show to friends and some have actually bought tickets on my recommendation


London Box Office customer

Insanely funny.

The musical only slightly differs in parts from the film, so the die-hard fans of the film might wonder why, but take no notice of that. You're watching a Mel Brooks production, so be honoured and feast on it. The sets, the props, the pyrotechnics all make up the atmosphere for the Frankenstein's monster story. The acting and singing is faultless and you'll be sniggering throughout the show. Thank you Mel for bringing the musical back to life!

Second Look: YOUNG FRANKENSTEIN at the Garrick Theatre

08 Jun 2018 in Reviews

Young Frankenstein It has been over forty years since Mel Brooks brought 'Young Frankenstein' to our screens, and it quickly became a cult classic. But, I wondered, is it still relevant to a new generation, will the musical version live up to its film predecessor? Would innuendo and jokes about forking and knockers still make an audience of today laugh, or does politically correctness frown upon such humour?

Review: YOUNG FRANKENSTEIN at the Garrick Theatre

03 May 2018 in Reviews

Young Frankenstein YOUNG FRANKENSTEIN was originally a movie written by Gene Wilder and Mel Brooks back in the 1970s. A highly successful spoof of the B movie horror films that were filled with monsters running amok, angry village mobs with burning torches in hand, baying for blood and protagonists trying to manipulate death.

Cast announced for Young Frankenstein

24 Apr 2017 in News

Young Frankenstein Garrick Theatre The cast has been announced for the London production of Mel Brooks' Broadway flop YOUNG FRANKENSTEIN. I enjoyed it so much when I saw the dress rehearsal of the original show in New York that I paid to see it a second time!

However there's no doubt that it was dwarfed by the vast New Amsterdam Theatre and buckled under the weight of expectations that it would be as funny as Brook's previous smash hit The Producers and worth the record breaking, high ticket prices cynical and exploitative producers were charging.
