PROGRAMMING NOTES

This version is based on the 2017 London West End Production directed by Susan Stroman.

This show is designed to be piano-conducted. Unlike the original Broadway orchestration which calls for 2 keyboards, the West End version has just a single keyboard part that is played by the conductor. There are some differences in the songs, lyrics, and script from the original Broadway version which is also available.

The Piano/Conductor score also serves as the Keyboard 1 part and is primarily piano throughout but there are approximately 50 patches in this version covering various electric organs and other keyboard instruments. This is a challenging book and will require a strong player who can navigate the part while conducted as well as the programming.

SHOW DESCRIPTION

From the creators of The Producers comes the celebrated West End “Vaudeville” 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, 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).
