NEW YORK POST

"THE BROADWAY MUSICAL AT ITS DIZZIEST, GLITZIEST AND FUNNIEST! Mel Brooks and Susan Stroman pull out every stop with DIVINE silliness and a touch of GENIUS. Brooks's lyrics are bright and witty. The book is GREAT. The scenery is DELICIOUS. The special effects are among THE CLEVEREST THINGS I'VE EVER SEEN ON STAGE." -Clive Barnes, New York Post

 

THE NEW YORK TIMES

"A high density of talent, the hardest-working supersize ensemble and the largest percentage of gags per scene. 'Puttin on the Ritz' is TRULY EXHILARATING." -Ben Brantley, The New York Times

 

THE HARTFORD COURANT

"A SUREFIRE SMASH! MEL BROOKS has outdone even his wildly popular 'The Producers' and surpasses himself as a lyricist! HE DOESN'T DISAPPOINT! Choreographic HILARITY from director/choreographer SUSAN STROMAN! She and the designers have WORKED WONDERS! With lightning flashes, thunder crashes, fog creeps and electrical impulses zigzagging, 'Young Frankenstein' has come to life! A MONSTER HIT!" -Malcolm Johnson, The Hartford Courant

 

BLOOMBERG NEWS

"IT'S A HIT! This remarkable show outjokes 'The Producers' and is much above its competitors. With EYE-POPPING scenery, PRAISEWORTHY performances, INSPIRED choreography and DEVILISHLY acrobatic dances, it's visually BREATHLESS - and BREATHTAKING. It gives any horror flick's special effects a run for the money." -John Simon, Bloomberg News

 

WNBC TV

"This RIOTOUSLY FUNNY musical will knock you clear across 42nd Street! It's all crazy, all witty, all zany Mel Brooks, and there is NO FUNNIER MAN ON THE PLANET. THERE ARE TWO GENIUSES AT WORK IN THE THEATER...'YOUNG FRANKENSTEIN' AND MEL BROOKS!" -Jeffrey Lyons, WNBC TV

 

WABC TV

"LAVISH DOESN'T EVEN BEGIN TO COVER IT. The visual effects RAISE THE BAR FOR BROADWAY! Raising the dead has never been more lively. THE NEW MEL BROOKS MUSICAL HAS MORE THAN ENOUGH ELECTRICITY and A MOST EFFECTIVE ENSEMBLE." -Sandy Kenyon, WABC-TV

 

PAT COLLINS

"A night of ABBY-NORMAL HILARITY with a showstopper to end all showstoppers. YOUNG FRANKENSTEIN is INSPIRED LUNACY that's certain to be A MONSTER HIT!" -Pat Collins, MY9-TV

 

THE BOSTON GLOBE

"IT DAZZLES! MEL BROOKS and the gang have spared no effort or expense! There's enough electricity here to power a dozen ordinary musicals!" -Louise Kennedy, The Boston Globe

 

LA TIMES

"DELIGHTFULLY NUTTY! GLITTERING, BUOYANT FUN that TICKLES ITS AUDIENCE INTO HIGH SPIRITS. CLASSIC BROOKS!" - Charles McNulty, Los Angeles Times

 

HOLLYWOOD REPORTER

"A HIGHLY ENTERTAINING MUSICAL-COMEDY SPECTACULAR FEATURING ENDLESS DOSES OF BROOKS' CLASSIC HUMOR, TERRIFIC PERFORMANCES AND TYPICALLY EXPERT STAGING BY SUSAN STROMAN. A HILARIOUS CROWD-PLEASER! Brooks' score is bouncy and tuneful, and the music is carried along by the hilarious lyrics and Stroman's exuberant staging. Stroman's formidable skills are RIOTOUS and SHOWSTOPPING." - Frank Scheck, Hollywood Reporter
