It's alive! Mel Brooks reunited with the creative team behind The Producers for this comedic reimagining of the Frankenstein story that became a Broadway hit. The musical follows young Dr. Frankenstein (pronounced "Fronkensteen") as he tries to complete his grandfather's work and bring a corpse to life. He is aided by the hunchbacked, bulging-eyed Igor, his beautiful lab assistant, Inga, and the frightfully eccentric housekeeper Frau Blucher. Featuring a live orchestra, an energetic cast and hilarious, catchy tunes like "Transylvania Mania," "He Vas My Boyfriend" and "Puttin' on the Ritz," Drury Lane Theatre's production of Young Frankenstein is scientifically proven to be a horrifically good time.

Directed by David Bell
East meets West head-on in this hilarious 1940s-style update of a Gilbert and Sullivan favorite with music transmuted into blues, swing, hot gospel, scorching torch songs and a homage to the Andrew Sisters' that is a show-stopper. This tap-dancing, zoot-suited comedy is certain to provide the ideal evening out for the whole family.
Drury Lane has benefited from the unique vision of David Bell since the very beginning: In 1984 he directed the company's first show, Give My Regards to Broadway. David's international credits include London and Broadway successes as well as countless awards.
Having directed and choreographed 10 productions of Hot Mikado, David says of the experience, "There is something about the high octane - “Zoot Suited” swing dancing, the diverse rhythm and Blues, Gospel and Big Band score, and the good-natured old-fashioned clowning – that has captured the imagination of. . .audiences over the years."
