in association with Bay Street Theater & Geva Theatre Center

Get set for a monstrously entertaining experience as Mel Brooks’ Young Frankenstein, the musical comedy born from Mel Brooks’ comedic genius and brought to life by the creators of the record-breaking Broadway sensation The Producers, descends upon The Colonial Theatre. This wickedly inspired reimagining of Brooks’ classic comedy film thrusts Dr. Frederick Frankenstein (pronounced “Fronk-en-steen”) into the spotlight as he inherits his family’s eerie estate in Transylvania. Alongside his peculiar sidekick Igor (pronounced “Eye-gore”) and the enchanting lab assistant Inga, Frederick ventures into the realm of mad science, striving to resurrect a corpse and rival his infamous grandfather’s experiment.

Bringing the hilarious antics of the screen sensation to life with added theatrical flair, this stage adaptation captures every ounce of the film’s panache. From the clandestine laboratories to the iconic exclamation of “It’s alive!,” the musical electrifies with unforgettable tunes such as “The Transylvania Mania,” “He Vas My Boyfriend” and “Puttin’ on the Ritz.” Mel Brooks’ Young Frankenstein promises an uproarious evening, catering to both die-hard fans of the original and newcomers, while offering a platform to showcase a diverse array of talents. Join us for an electrifying night of laughter and music!
