The stars turned out in force last night to see Mel Brooks' musical Young Frankenstein come alive in the West End.

Joan Collins, Tim Minchin, Cameron Mackintosh, Paul Merton and a raft of celebrities supported the show on its opening night, joining the cast afterwards to celebrate.

In our five-star review of the show, writer Alun Hood says 'it becomes literally impossible to stop laughing. A triumph'.

Based on the hit 1974 film which starred Gene Wilder, Young Frankenstein has a cast including Hadley Fraser, Ross Noble, Summer Strallen, Lesley Joseph and Diane Pilkington. It is directed by Susan Stroman.

The show has a book by Brooks and Thomas Meehan, with music and lyrics by Brooks.

Young Frankenstein runs at the Garrick Theatre until 10 February.
