Synopsis
Grandson of the infamous Victor Frankenstein, Frederick Frankenstein (pronounced “Fronk-en-steen”) inherits his family’s estate in Transylvania. With the help of a hunchbacked side-kick, Igor (pronounced “Eye-gore”), and a leggy lab assistant, Inga (pronounced normally), Frederick finds himself in the mad scientist shoes of his ancestors. “It’s alive!” he exclaims as he brings to life a creature to rival his grandfather’s. Eventually, of course, the monster escapes and hilarity continuously abounds. Based on the 1974 classic Mel Brooks motion picture, your favorite lines, characters and moments are brought to life as a new Mel Brooks’ Broadway musical with such favorites as Roll in Ze Hay, He Vas My Boyfriend, Transylvania Mania or the show-stopping Puttin’ on the Ritz.
