Cash bar. Save your money have a drink elsewhere before the show.

I have to say ...I wasn't expecting the fabulous show that it was!!!! It was terrific. I am not really a Mel Brooks fan, but the singing , dancing, costumes , set .....the "whole package" was wonderful!

Mel Brooks always funny but I could not makeout for the most part the words to the songs. The dancing fab. the acting great but I would not remend this particular play.

We laughed the entire show. The cast was great and so was the music. Loved the show and loved the price of the tickets. We probably would not have gone if we did not get such a good deal!

Description

The classic Mel Brooks movie is ALIVE…and it’s headed to Boston! You’ll have a monstrously good time at this spectacular new production, winner of the 2008 Outer Critics Circle Award and the Broadway.com Audience Award for Best Musical! Don’t miss the sensational cast delivering all your favorite moments from the classic film, plus brand-new show-stopping numbers for the stage, including “Transylvania Mania,” “He Vas My Boyfriend” and “Puttin’ on the Ritz.”

This wickedly inspired re-imagining of the Frankenstein legend follows bright young Dr. Frankenstein (that’s Fronkensteen) as he attempts to create a monster—but not without scary and hilarious complications. The brains behind the laughter is 3-time Tony® winner Mel Brooks—who wrote the music and lyrics and co-wrote the book-along with his record-breaking team from The Producers.
