Photo Flash: Mel Brooks & Don Rickles Visit 'November'

Hollywood movie-maker and Broadway producer, composer/lyricist Mel Brooks (Young Frankenstein, The Producers) and American comedian and actor Don Rickles attended a recent performance of David Mamet's November and met star Nathan Lane backstage at the Ethel Barrymore Theatre (243 West 47th Street).

"Set just days before a major presidential election, November involves civil marriages, gambling casinos, lesbians, American Indians, presidential libraries, questionable pardons and campaign contributions," explain press notes.

The highly anticipated World Premiere comedy began previews on Thursday, December 20 and will officially open January 17. The production stars Nathan Lane as incumbent US President Charles Smith; and also stars Laurie Metcalf as Clarice Bernstein, aide to President Smith; and Dylan Baker as Arthur Brown, presidential adviser. Two-time Tony Award-winner Joe Mantello (Take Me Out, Glengarry Glen Ross) directs.

The regular performance schedule is Tues 7pm - Wed 2pm & 8pm - Thurs 8pm - Fri 8pm - Sat 2pm & 8pm - Sun 3pm.  For tickets and information visit www.NovemberThePlay.com
