“If you don't find Young Frankenstein a satisfyingly hilarious night in the theatre, you might want to get your vital signs checked: this is the funniest West End musical since The Producers. Of course that too was the work of comic genius Mel Brooks in collaboration with one of Broadway's finest director-choreographers, Susan Stroman. The Producers went down a storm here when it crossed the pond, but can lightning strike twice? Damn right it can.
The legendary ‘Puttin' On The Ritz’ sequence from the movie is also greeted with theatre-shaking roars of approval, and escalates exhilaratingly into a full production number that rivals even Stroman's sensational work on ‘Springtime For Hitler’ in The Producers.
This is a wonderful night out, frequently reaching that all too rare comic plateau where it becomes literally impossible to stop laughing. A triumph.”
