Hot Date: Man Behind the Monster

Young Frankenstein (photo by Paul Kolnik)

MARCH 17 TO APRIL 18 Whether or not you’ve seen the 1974 comedy classic filmed by Mel Brooks, the new theatrical version of Young Frankenstein—also written by Brooks—promises to be fiendishly funny. Watch as a young Doctor Frederick “Fronkensteen” visits his dead grandfather’s Transylvanian estate and attempts to create a living man from a dug-up corpse and pillaged brain. Hilarious intellectual exchanges and musical numbers ensue—just try to keep a straight face as the reanimated monster hoofs it to “Puttin’ on the Ritz.” Princess of Wales Theatre, Tuesday to Saturday 8 p.m., Wednesday, Saturday and Sunday 2 p.m., $26 to $120; call 416-872-1212 or check out TicketKing to buy.
