Mel Brooks’ Young Frankenstein Theatre Breaks are now available to book having opened to rave reviews at the Garrick Theatre, London.
The London run for Young Frankenstein Theatre Breaks has now been extended to Saturday 25th August 2018 – so hurry, that is not long! Written by Mel Brooks who was recently awarded the BAFTA Fellowship, the highest honour that the Academy bestow and a lifetime achievement recognising his remarkable career across the arts.
Young Frankenstein, the wickedly inspired re-imagining of the Mary Shelley classic, see’s Frederick Frankenstein, an esteemed New York brain surgeon and professor, inherit a castle and laboratory in Transylvania from his deranged genius grandfather, Victor Von Frankenstein. He now faces a dilemma – does he continue to run from his family’s tortured past or does he stay in Transylvania to carry on his grandfather’s mad experiments reanimating the dead and, in the process, fall in love with his sexy lab assistant Inga?
Based on the hilarious 1974 film which Brooks co-wrote with the late great Gene Wilder, who also played the part of Frederick; this time he collaborates once more with Thomas Meehan, with whom he worked on The Producers, and it will directed by Broadway choreographer Susan Stroman.
The cast will include Ross Noble, Lesley Joseph, Hadley Fraser, Dianne Pilkington and Summer Strallen.
