Robert F.X. Sillerman and Mel Brooks present the new musical comedy from the creative team of the 12-time Tony Award-winning smash The Producers. Opening night is Nov. 8. The musical is based on Brooks' Oscar-nominated hit 1974 film, "Young Frankenstein." It's billed as "the wickedly inspired re-imagining of the Mary Shelley classic from the comic genius of Mel Brooks. When Frederick Frankenstein, an esteemed New York brain surgeon and professor, inherits a castle and laboratory in Transylvania from his grandfather, deranged genius Victor Von Frankenstein, he faces a dilemma. Does he continue to run from his family's tortured past or does he stay in Transylvania to carry on his grandfather's mad experiments reanimating the dead and, in the process, fall in love with his sexy lab assistant Inga?

"Unfolding in the forbidding Castle Frankenstein and the foggy moors of Transylvania Heights, the show's raucous score includes 'The Transylvania Mania,' 'He Vas My Boyfriend' and the unforgettable treatment of Irving Berlin's 'Puttin' On the Ritz.'"

The production stars Roger Bart (Dr. Frederick Frankenstein), Megan Mullally (Elizabeth), Sutton Foster (Inga), Shuler Hensley (The Monster), Andrea Martin (Frau Blucher), Fred Applegate (Kemp) and Christopher Fitzgerald (Igor).

Young Frankenstein has a book by three-time Tony Award winner Mel Brooks and three-time Tony Award winner Thomas Meehan and music and lyrics by Brooks. The production is directed and choreographed by five-time Tony Award winner Susan Stroman. Musical supervision is by Glen Kelly.

Young Frankenstein will play a pre-Broadway world-premiere engagement at Seattle's Paramount Theatre Aug. 7-Sept. 1.

The 1974 film earned an Academy Award nomination for Mel Brooks and Gene Wilder's script, which was also nominated for a Writer's Guild of America Award for Best Adapted Screenplay.

During Broadway previews, Young Frankenstein will play Monday-Saturday evenings at 8 PM and Saturdays at 2 PM. Beginning Nov. 13, Young Frankenstein will play Tuesday evenings at 7 PM and Wednesday-Saturday evenings at 8 PM, with matinee performances on Wednesday and Saturday at 2 PM and Sunday at 3 PM.

(Exceptions: There will be Wednesday matinees on Oct. 31 and Nov. 7 at 2 PM, and no performances on Fridays, Nov. 2 and 9).

Tickets range from $121.50-$51.50 (including a $1.50 facility fee). Much higher-priced "premium seats" are available at all performances. Also, $25 orchestra seats will be available at most performances. Details regarding these day-of-show only tickets will be announced shortly.
