IT'S ALIVE! From the creators of the record-breaking Broadway sensation THE PRODUCERS comes this monster new musical comedy. The comedy genius Mel Brooks adapts his electrifyingly funny film into a brilliant stage creation - YOUNG FRANKENSTEIN!

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 a leggy lab assistant, Inga (pronounced normally), 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.

Mel Brooks and Thomas Meehan sew together an immaculate blend of tongue in cheek, double entendre, and downright goofy comedic moments in YOUNG FRANKENSTEIN. Every bit as relevant to audience members who will remember the original as it will be to newcomers, YOUNG FRANKENSTEIN has all the panache of the screen sensation with a little extra theatrical flair added. It will surely be the perfect opportunity for a production company to showcase an array of talents. With such memorable tunes as "The Transylvania Mania," "He Vas My Boyfriend" and "Puttin' On The Ritz," YOUNG FRANKENSTEIN is scientifically-proven, monstrously good entertainment

The original production of Marry Me A Little was designed to take place on the set of a play already running at the theatre about single-occupancy hotels —hence the concept of two people living in separate apartments.
