I'm attending the Houston production this evening at the Hobby Center for the Performing Arts. Here's a link.

I enjoyed the old Mel Brooks movie with Dom Deluise and Marty Feldman many years ago and am looking forward to its stage reincarnation.

Has anyone seen the Broadway version with Matthew Broderick and Nathan Lane? That's really the be-all and end-all, I understand.

I'm already singing "Springtime for Hitler, and Germany..." Very Happy

Winter for Poland and France . . .

It was also the film debut for Gene Wilder, if i'm not mistaken. It's been one of my favorites since i saw it in the original release in 1969.

Me too, Set, me too. In fact, I liked the flick so well I'm reluctant to go see the stage version for fear it might spoil my memory of the original.

mac! Que pasta? :wink:

It was excellent, as you probably know.

"Beealleeschtock and Bluuuum..."

The fellow who was Cameron Frye in "Ferris Bueller", Alan Ruck, took over for Matt Broderick as Leo Bloom, the CPA-turned-producer. And Charley Izabella King and Lewis J. Stadlin came down from the Broadway production to Houston to reprise their roles as Ulla and Max Bialystock.

Moderned up for the millenium, with "Keep It Gay" almost over the top and the other numbers managed exceptionally down to the last detail (one of Liebkind's carrier pigeons had on a swastika wingband), this is something a theater geek like you needs to see.

Go. Hurry.

I had the good fortune to see the NY production a while back. It is a lot of fun and I'm glad you got to see it!

I'm hoping to see the Toronto production with hamburger and mrs. hamburger after her recovery from today's eye surgery.

Really looking forward to it!
