Young Frankenstein (West End Version)

Young Frankenstein (West End Version)
The celebrated West End Version of the hilarious Mel Brooks musical is ready to electrify your stage!

From the creators of The Producers comes the celebrated West End Version of this monster musical comedy. Featuring slight revisions and enhancements made by the original Broadway creative team, Young Frankenstein (West End Version) is ready to shock your audience! 

The 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 sidekick, 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.

Young Frankenstein (West End Version) has all of the panache of the screen sensation with an extra theatrical flair. A perfect opportunity for a production company to showcase an array of talents, you'll be "Puttin' on the Ritz" and having a monstrously good time with Young Frankenstein (West End Version).

"If you want a bawdy, uproarious belly laugh that’s done out of pure love for the genres that it parodys, this is a show that delivers in spades." - The Radio Times

What's the difference?

I've directed the original version but I am wondering what the changes are to the West End version? I'm hoping to do the show again with a different group!
