Pirate Productions asbl has announced that tickets have gone on sale for their forthcoming production of Mel Brooks "Young Frankenstein – The Musical" to be performed from 8 to 11 November 2018 at the Kinneksbond in Mamer (42 route d'Arlon).
Young Frankenstein is a musical with a book by Mel Brooks and Thomas Meehan, and music and lyrics by Brooks. It is based on the 1974 comedy film of the same name written by Brooks and Gene Wilder and directed by Brooks, who has described it as his best film. It is a parody of the horror film genre, especially the 1931 Universal Pictures adaptation of Mary Shelley's Frankenstein and its 1939 sequel, Son of Frankenstein.
Respected medical lecturer Dr. Frederick Frankenstein learns that he has inherited his infamous grandfather's estate in Transylvania. Arriving at the castle, Dr. Frankenstein soon begins to recreate his grandfather's experiments with the help of servants Igor, Inga and the fearsome Frau Blücher. After he creates his own monster, further complications ensue with the arrival of the doctor's fiancée, Elizabeth Benning. The local villagers attempt to destroy the monster, who escapes and kidnaps Elizabeth. Desperate to save his creation, Frederick proposes a highly risky brain transference procedure with somewhat surprising results.
Young Frankenstein contains some adult themes and language and may not be suitable for young children.
Performances: 19:30 on 8, 9 & 10 November; 14:30 on 10 & 11 November.
