Last night I was lucky enough to see Young Frankenstein at the Garrick Theatre and I cannot recommend it highly enough. I grew up on a steady diet of Mel Brooks films so was naturally drawn to the news that it was on in the west end. I have only just discovered that it has … More Young Frankenstein.
