Mel Brooks to Star in Autobiographical Solo Show

first_img Brooks has two hit musicals to his name—The Producers and Young Frankenstein, both stage adaptations of his classic films. He won three Tony Awards in 2001 for the former. Though few details have been released regarding the performance, audiences can expect anecdotes from Brooks’ life and career in TV, movies and musicals. “What Mel wanted to do,” said producer Kevin Salter, “was to have a platform to tell some of these great stories that he has in an intimate fashion.” Regarding the show’s late announcement (the performance being just days away,) Salter explained to the Los Angeles Times, “Mel works in that live TV way where everything happens quickly.” We’ve seen his work on stage and on screen, but now legendary funnyman Mel Brooks himself will take to the spotlight for one-night-only! The Los Angeles Times reports that the EGOT-er will appear in a one-man autobiographical show at the Geffen Playhouse in L.A. Mel Brooks: Live at the Geffen will play the venue’s Gil Cates Theatre on April 28.center_img View Commentslast_img
