Young Franken­stein

The Chronicle - - What’s On -

The­atre Royal

Mel Brook stamps his own unique per­spec­tive all over the New­cas­tle stage as he brings to stage life his own movie based on the clas­sic hor­ror yarn. The leg­endary film­maker and co­me­dian’s all-singing, all-danc­ing mu­si­cal col­lab­o­ra­tion with Broad­way di­rec­tor and chore­og­ra­pher Su­san Stro­man hot-foots it to the city di­rect from its West End pre­miere and an added draw for Ge­ordies is home-grown tal­ent Ross No­ble in the role of Igor. The co­me­dian shares the spot­light with Hadley Fraser, who plays Dr Franken­stein, as well as Les­ley Joseph; Dianne Pilk­ing­ton and Sum­mer Strallen. The show runs un­til Septem­ber 9.
