This show is funny beyond belief and a real joy to watch. If it’s a feel-good show you want, then Young Frankenstein is the one for you.
It’s alive…barely. Mel Brooks’ Young Frankenstein staggers into the West End after some more time on the operating table since its 2007 Broadway opening. But for a piece of new musical theatre, it is so desperately old-fashioned that you half expect Russ Abbot and Bella Emberg to pop up and do a turn.
