About the Musical

It’s alive! This electrifying adaptation of Mel Brooks’ monstrously funny film will leave you in stitches. Grandson of the infamous Victor Frankenstein, Frederick Frankenstein (pronounced “Fronk-en-steen”)—with help from Igor (pronounced “Eye-gore”) and Inga (pronounced normally)—finds himself in the mad scientist shoes of his ancestors. Young Frankenstein is presented through special arrangement with Music Theatre International (MTI). All authorized performance materials are also supplied by MTI. www.MTIShows.com
