It's alive! Palo Alto Players presents Young Frankenstein, Mel Brooks' Broadway hit based on his classic 1974 movie. Brooks reunited with the creative team behind The Producers for a comedic re-imagining of the Frankenstein story. Follow young Dr. Frankenstein (pronounced "Fronkensteen") as he tries to complete his grandfather's work and bring a corpse back to life. He's aided by the hunchbacked, bulging-eyed Igor, his beautiful lab assistant, Inga and an eccentric housekeeper, Frau Blucher. Featuring larger-than-life characters and hilariously catchy tunes like "Transylvania Mania," "He Vas My Boyfriend" and "Puttin' on the Ritz," Young Frankenstein is guaranteed to produce monstrous laughs.

Jewtopia, written by Bryan Fogel and Sam Wolfson, tells the story of two 30 year old single men, Chris O’Connell and Adam Lipschitz. Chris, a gentile, wants to marry a Jewish girl so he’ll never have to make another decision. Adam Lipschitz, a Jew, wants to marry a Jewish girl to please his family, but can’t get a date to save his life. After meeting at a Jewish singles mixer, Adam and Chris form a secret pact. Chris promises that he will help Adam find the Jewish girl of his dreams and show him “Jewtopia”, but only if Adam will help Chris shed his gentile-ness and bring him undercover into the Jewish world. Stereotypes collide, cultures clash and chaos ensues!
