Wonderful fun, lots of laughs. For me a bit hard with the jokes when they were using the foreign accent, just my older ears I guess, most of the audience was laughing.

My 3rd time seeing this stage adaptation (by different companies, at different venues) and I still found the experience very enjoyable with laughs throughout the entire show. Good acting, fun songs, great stage props plus nice seats at a goldstar...continued

great facility and wonderful sets, but the music that accompanies this play is terrible, I was very disappointed and left just before the intermission.

It was funny. The music was largely forgettable. Only Puttin on the Ritz was memorable.

It was nicely done. I didn't find the music particularly good but it was funny as you would expect. Not a lot of great new material. The best jokes were ones from the movie.

As usual, Musical Theatre West puts on a first class production and the Carpenter theater does not have a bad seat in the house.

Although the performances and production quality were top-notch, the show is LONG (just under one and a half hours for the first act, an hour long second act, plus intermission = 2 hours 45 minutes!) Love the movie, but too many songs and...continued

This was one of the best experiences ever! The quality of the musical numbers and the dancing was over the top. Word of caution- definetly had "adult themes". Be prepared for a wonderful 3 hour romp through the world of "Young Frankenstein"!

What a wonderful musical, even though it did deviate a bit from the film. The set design and staging worked so well that we felt immersed in the production. Kudos to the director as well. The actors/singers were outstanding in their respective...continued

A truly fun time in the theatre. Though not the best musical ever written, those who know the movie will certainly enjoy this show. Many of the scenes are delightfully recreated onstage. Special kudos to Zachary Ford (Dr. Frederick Frankenstein),...continued

My son is a Mel Brooks fan...what a treat. Can't beat the price. We had awesome seats. It was quality time well spent.

Maybe seeing the original Mel Brooks film first isn't such a great idea.

Energetic, if somehow only moderately funny show. The cast was all fully-invested in their characters (especially all the women), but Gene Wilder's shoes are awfully big...continued
