Such a wonderful show! We're huge fans of the movie so we didn't quite know what to expect in the live performance. By far, Igor and Frau Brucher were our favorite! They kept up laughing and surprising us with the hilarious raunchy-ness that is...continued

This was by far the best community theater show I have seen in Seattle in a very long time -- a very deep and talented cast with wonderful funny performances, even in multiple roles (everyone was fantastic!), great music, costumes, lighting, and...continued

Thoroughly enjoyable and rather bawdy! Went with my wife and 16-year-old daughter, both who like me are fans of Mel Brooks and consider Young Frankenstein his best work. Very intimate and casual atmosphere, and you could tell the cast was having...continued

To quote Mel Brooks:
"We sat there sighing
Groaning and crying
There's no denying
It's the worst show in town"

THE SHOW
So, how exactly do you screw up a piece by Mel Brooks?
I bet when the show was launched on Broadway in 2007, they...continued

Fine acting especially Igor and the fiancee. The music was fine yet predictable, well played overall. The venue was spacious and comfortable. The first act could have been trimmed but the second half was excellent. Not a first tier production...continued

I took an 11 year old girl and a 15 year old boy to this show without knowing how much sexual innuendo and graphic physical mimicry was involved. I would have appreciated a "parental guidance" warning. The acting and particularly the singing was...continued

The show started out a little slow with "one liners" that had you thinking "Really?" It was more like "cute" with a chuckle but not a good laugh. I don't know what happened during intermission as once everyone returned to the stage, they had my...continued

Enjoyed the play, it was very funny and I believe there are many things I missed because there were so many funny, quick jokes. It is something you could see multiple times to catch different things each time.

The acting, directing and the music were top notch. The only weakness of Young Frankenstein is in the play itself. Director Sam Pettit has put together a show that is entertaining and fun to watch. Yes, the jokes are cheesy at times, but Sam made...continued

The Goldstar experience was excellent! Unfortunately, the production was a disappointment. I wouldn't recommend this "Young Frankenstein" to my friends, or to other musical theater lovers.

We love going to Magneson Park anyway but yesterday was a bright, sunny, warm day. The directions on Goldstar were perfect and we found the theatre right away and got a good parking space. Tickets were waiting and we were greeted by the staff. We...continued
