One of the worst shows I have ever seen. Not funny or clever. The sound was painfully loud.

Fun, fabulous day at the theater. Everything about this production is well-done: the singing, dancing, props, acting. There isn't a weak element to it. It moves along at a brisk pace, packing in laughs along the way. Very high-spirited, funny...continued

Definitely an enjoyable event, but not nearly as good as the Producers musical. The writing seemed over the top (even for Mel Brooks), and the actors seemed to be trying to hard for laughs. Something was just off.

The classic Mel Brooks movie is ALIVE…and it’s headed here! You’ll have a monstrously good time at this spectacular new production, winner of the 2008 Outer Critics Circle Award and the 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 mad genius and three-time Tony® winner Mel Brooks himself—who wrote the music and lyrics and co-wrote the book- along with his record-breaking team from The Producers: five-time Tony-winning director and choreographer Susan Stroman and three-time Tony-winning writer, Thomas Meehan.
