Based on the film by Mel Brooks

A New Mel Brooks Musical. Adapted by Mel Brooks and Thomas Meehan from Brooks’ 1968 film of the same name, with lyrics by Brooks and music by Brooks and Glen Kelly. As in the film, the story concerns two theatrical producers who scheme to get rich by overselling interests in a Broadway flop. Complications arise when the show unexpectedly turns out to be successful.



The original production opened on Broadway on April 19, 2001, starring Nathan Lane and Matthew Broderick, and ran for 2,502 performances, winning a record-breaking 12 Tony Awards. It spawned a successful London production running for three years, national tours, many productions internationally and a 2005 film version.

by Matt Tamanini - Oct 26, 2014

I took last week off from reviewing HOMELAND, because, to be honest, I was rather disturbed and disgusted by the final scene. I wasn't sure what to make of it; was Carrie's sexual advances on Aayan the cold and calculating maneuvers of a master manipulator, or had Carrie fallen so far from the confident espionage genius that she once was that she felt the only way to regain some control over her life was to exert her sexuality over some unexpectant prey? While Aayan clearly was not telling her no, the entire act felt dirty and, at some level, non-consensual to me. So, I was anxious to watch this week's episode to see how the show would spin the decision to have Carrie bed the former med student. (more...)
