Mel Brooks Heads To Broadway For Two Night Engagement

Emmy-, Grammy-, Oscar- and Tony-Award (EGOT) winner Mel Brooks will be taking the stage at the Lunt-Fontanne Theatre in New York City on June 17th and 18th, Playbill reported. Titled “Mel Brooks On Broadway,” the engagement is part of the In Residence On Broadway series at the theater.

During his stint, Brooks will bring comedy, personal anecdotes and film clips from some of his most famous films together into an unscripted show. According to Deadline, the two-night performance is being billed as “a very special evening of unforgettable tales and non-stop laughter.”

Brooks — director of classics such as “The Producers,” “Young Frankenstein,” and “Blazing Saddles” — has previously had productions of his work on Broadway before, with musical adaptations of “The Producers” from 2001-2006 and “Young Frankenstein” from 2007-2009.

The Residence On Broadway series, going from May-July, highlights performers with limited engagements of five to ten shows at the Lunt-Fontanne Theatre. Previously announced performers are Morrissey, Yanni and Regina Spektor.

Tickets will go on sale starting at 10AM on April 23 on Ticketmaster.
