The Telegraph (UK)

I’m awarding it a “mere” four stars because I don’t think audiences should go in over-expectant – and clearly fans will get more out of it than the uninitiated...Very silly and entirely welcome.

London Theatre

Here is a show in a vaudevillian music hall tradition that's very legible to British audiences, steeped as we are in pantomime, yet also executed with real Broadway theatrical aplomb.

The horror-movie spoof is gleefully reanimated for the stage with even more jokes, superb set-pieces and barnstorming parody songs that stick a pitchfork into good taste.

For once, I really did laugh until I cried, not least in amazement that so unapologetically bawdy, lowdown a romp has somewhere along the way acquired a heart.

Young Frankenstein would be a middling musical even were it not for the Nixon-era sexual politics...the way the show treats women cannot be overlooked.

The Independent (UK)

Mel Brooks’s musical make-over of his classic 1974 horror movie spoof is deliriously silly and shameless from start to finish. That’s its appeal. It has no aspirations other than to unleash laughter. On that front, the show is a signal success.

The London Evening Standard
October 11th, 2017

Yet there are darts of wit in unexpected places, as well as a bawdy delight in some truly awful double-entendres. Even if there's a tendency to milk good jokes dry, it's hard not to succumb to the infectious daftness of this escapist crowd-pleaser.

Time Out London

It’s still madcap, energetic fun...Still, I’m not sure what lightning bolt of inspiration persuaded Mel Brooks to reanimate this musical comedy – it might have been better left for dead.
