Young Frankenstein


Book by Mel Brooks and Thomas Meehan 
Music and Lyrics by  Mel Brooks

Grandson of the infamous Victor Frankenstein, Frederick Frankenstein (pronounced “Fronk-en-steen”) inherits his family’s estate in  Transylvania. With the help of a hunchbacked side-kick, Igor (pronounced “Eye-gore”), and Inga, a leggy lab assistant, Frederick finds  himself in the mad scientist shoes of his ancestors. “It’s alive!” he exclaims as he  brings to life a creature to rival his grandfather’s. Eventually, of  course, the monster escapes and hilarity continuously abounds.
