It’s Alive! Based on the Mel Brooks’ 1974 hit comedy film of the same name, Young Frankenstein is scientifically-proven, monstrously good entertainment…and the only place you’ll witness a singing and dancing laboratory experiment in the largest tuxedo ever made. Young Dr. Frankenstein attempts to complete his grandfather’s work and bring a corpse to life. Together with his hunchbacked helper, his curvaceous lab assistant, and his self-involved, madcap fiancée, Frankenstein succeeds, but not without scary and often hilarious complications. This wickedly inspired, sometimes bawdy musical has such memorable tunes as “The Transylvania Mania” and “Puttin’ On The Ritz.”

Taikin’ Broadway REVIEW –
ABT’s production of Young Frankenstein is hysterical, escapist entertainment that turns the whole affair into an affectionate crowd-pleaser…a bang up production with impressive creative elements, solid direction and an impeccable cast that wrings every vaudeville-style comic moment and bawdy nuance from the script! Gil Benbrook, talkinbroadway.com
Arizona Broadway Theatre gives life to Young Frankenstein…and offers more than well-crafted musicals. It is a unique way to experience theatre…in a stylish and comfortable setting that radiates commitment to audience delight…The company delivers its brand promise in this current production!
Halloween really has come early and at ABT it’s so much more fun than trick or treat! David Appleford, 99.9 KEZ
THE VERDICT: This show, and ABT’s production of it, is 110% pure silliness…as light as a Transylvanian entertainment can be. Jump in your cart and take a raucous hayride up to Peoria for a good way to kick off the summer! Julie Peterson, PNT
