It’s Good to Be King! Mel Brooks is Coming to Broadway for Two Nights in June, And I’m Kvelling


Mel Brooks is coming to Broadway. Two nights– June 17th and 18th at the Lunt Fontanne Theater.

Mel is 92 years young. God willing he’ll turn 93 ten days later. Amazing. The brilliant and hilarious legend of everything from “Your Show of Shows” to “Blazing Saddles,” “Young Frankenstein,” and of course, “The Producers” will put on a little show. It will be glorious.

Mel’s shows are part of Live Nation’s “In Residence” series. They’re going to announce the rest of the summer line up soon. Mel Brooks is a good omen!

Ticket sales begin tomorrow, April 23, on
