Young Frankenstein


  • Palos Verdes Performing Arts (map)

Like Mel Brook's monsterously funny film, the production is a parody of the horror film genre, especially the 1931 Universal Pictures adaptation of Mary Shelley's "Frankenstein" and its sequel, "Son of Frankenstein." In a reimagining of the famous legend, the grandson of mad scientist Victor Frankenstein inherits his family's estate in Transylvania, and with the help of his hunchbacked side-kick and leggy lab assistant, he brings to life a creature to rival his grandfather's. The musical is filled with wickedly inspired, show-stopping production numbers such as "Puttin' on the Ritz," "Transylvania Mania" and "He Vas My Boyfriend."
