Young Frankenstein

Book by Mel Brooks and Thomas Meehan
Music and Lyrics by Mel Brooks
Directed by Chris Johnson

A reinterpretation of the classic story by Mary Shelley. Dr. Victor Frankenstein creates a monster after becoming fascination with the decay of life. He runs away when the monster is created, and the monster slowly becomes fearful of humans after multiple encounters. He becomes self aware and tries to befriend one family, the De Laceys, but they reject him. He finds a young boy and befriends him, but when he finds out that the boy is Frankenstein’s brother, he kills him. Frankenstein, believing the monster to be responsible for the murder, runs into the wilderness in grief. The monster finds him and explains that he was innocent until humans shaped him into a monster. He requests a bride so that he may no longer be alone, and although Frankenstein initially agrees, he destroys his results before the creature is complete. Frankenstein ends up marrying his cousin, but the monster comes and kills her. Eventually, Frankenstein travels to the North Pole to meet him, but he dies along the way. The monster, after telling his story to the captain of the boat, Walton, goes to build himself a funeral pyre and burn himself to death
