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.

- "Many moments in this production are as spine-tingling for their musical beauty ... as they are for their Grand Guignol violence." --<em>Chicago Sun-Times</em>

Stephen Sondheim’s haunting musical thriller has been hailed "the greatest musical of the past half-century” by the Wall Street Journal. Sophisticated and uncompromising, Sweeney Todd has a great sense of fun, mixing intense drama with howlingly funny moments of dark humor. You will find yourself laughing hysterically one moment and gasping in surprise the next.
