Mel Brook stamps his own unique perspective all over the Newcastle stage as he brings to life his own movie based on the classic horror yarn. The theatre is hosting the premiere of the legendary filmmaker and comedian’s all-singing, all-dancing musical collaboration with Broadway director and choreographer Susan Stroman. 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.
