The New Mel Brooks Musical Young Frankenstein Tickets Now on Sale

September 19, 2011

The Broadway Theatre League of Utica announced today that individual tickets are now on sale for The New Mel Brooks Musical Young Frankenstein, which will be at the Stanley Theatre on September 27 and 28. Not only is Utica the first stop on the national tour of the new musical comedy, but the show will also be made over in Utica, allowing patrons of the Broadway Theatre League’s presentation to be among the first to see the newly revamped performance.  While in Utica, Young Frankenstein’s set, costumes, and promotional materials for the national tour will all be updated and revitalized.

“We are ecstatic to be the first stop on the tour and pleased to be able to host the cast and crew in Utica for nearly two weeks,” said Broadway Theatre League’s Executive Director John Fehlner. “This is an exciting opportunity for area theater lovers. It is not often that we get to see a brand new performance right in our own backyard,” he added.

Based on the Oscar-nominated smash hit 1974 film, Young Frankenstein is the wickedly inspired re-imagining of the Mary Shelley classic from the comic genius of Mel Brooks.  When Frederick Frankenstein, an esteemed New York brain surgeon and professor, inherits a castle and laboratory in Transylvania from his grandfather, deranged genius Victor Von Frankenstein, he faces a dilemma.  Does he continue to run from his family’s tortured past or does he stay in Transylvania to carry on his grandfather’s mad experiments reanimating the dead and, in the process, fall in love with his sexy lab assistant Inga?  Unfolding in the forbidding Castle Frankenstein and the foggy moors of Transylvania Heights, the show’s raucous score includes “The Transylvania Mania,” “He Vas My Boyfriend” and the unforgettable treatment of Irving Berlin’s “Puttin’ On the Ritz.”
