Two Acts, Book Musical, Rated PG-13
Original Broadway Version
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 -
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.
