IT'S ALIVE!  A 24th Street Theatre Premier! From the creators of the record-breaking Broadway sensation The Producers comes this monster new musical comedy.  A wickedly inspired re-imagining of the Frankenstein legend based on Mel Brooks' classic comedy masterpiece, the story follows bright young Dr. Frankenstein (that's Fronkensteen) as he attempts to complete his grandfather's masterwork and bring a corpse to life. With such memorable tunes as "The Transylvania Mania," "He Vas My Boyfriend" and "Puttin' On The Ritz," The New MEL BROOKS Musical YOUNG FRANKENSTEIN is scientifically-proven, monstrously good entertainment…and the only place you'll witness a singing and dancing laboratory experiment in the largest tuxedo ever made.

With all of the characters being portrayed by male musical comedy performers, think of it as “Mrs. Doubtfire enters the Convent.” The hilarity begins when the Little Sisters of Hoboken discover that their cook, Sister Julia, Child of God, has accidentally poisoned 52 of the sisters, and they are in dire need of funds for the burials. The sisters decide that the best way to raise the money is to put on a variety show, so they take over the school auditorium. Here we meet Reverend Mother Regina (a former circus performer), Sister Mary Hubert (the Mistress of Novices), a streetwise nun from Brooklyn named Sister Robert Anne, Sister Mary Leo (a novice who is a wannabe ballerina), and the delightfully wacky Sister Mary Amnesia, the nun who lost her memory when a crucifix fell on her head. Featuring star turns, tap and ballet dancing, audience participation, and comic surprises, this show has become an international phenomenon. With more than 5000 productions worldwide, it has been translated into 21 languages. Suitable for theatre goers 12 and older.
