Young Frankenstein has announced its closure in the West End, after a run of 10 months.

The Mel Brooks musical will then tour the UK from September 2019.

Young Frankenstein opened at the Garrick Theatre in October last year, and will play its final performance on August 25.

It stars Hadley Fraser, Lesley Joseph, Cory English, Dianne Pilkington and Summer Strallen.

An original West End cast recording is also set for release in July.

Young Frankenstein is directed by Susan Stroman and produced by Michael Harrison, Fiery Angel and Kevin Salter.
