The West Australian premiere of Young Frankenstein is a well paced, very funny rendition of this comic musical. Nicely cast, with well-crafted performances, this show deserves the warm reception it received.
Jessie Angus shines in the title role, delivering an excellent, nicely timed performance including some impressive dancing. He is well matched in Laurence Williams as off-sider Igor, who also creates an excellent character and quickly becomes an audience favourite. John Lambert was lovely as the lumbering monster.
