“It’s alive!” The electrifying adaptation of Mel Brooks’ monstrously funny film will leave you in stitches. From the creators of the record-breaking Broadway sensation, The Producers, comes this monster musical comedy.

Travel with Dr. Frankenstein (that’s Fronkensteen) to a castle in Transylvania as he seeks to fulfill his grandfather’s legacy by bringing a corpse back to life. With help and hindrance from servant Igor, buxom assistant Inga, and needy fiancée Elizabeth, his experiment yields success and unexpected consequences.
