Is Mel Worth It?

Is Mel Worth It?

Regular readers already know how I feel about the outrageously priced top tickets for the upcoming Broadway adaptation of Mel Brooks' Young Frankenstein.

But given Michael Riedel's latest New York Post column, it's no wonder why they're so high when the great comedy maestro is set to earn big bucks with or without the yucks.

Is Brooks' genius worth it? I'll be curious to know what you think.

I'll give you my humble opinion soon enough as I get set to journey to Seattle for the out-of-town tryout shortly.

This is Steve On Broadway (SOB).

I have my own reservations, but I've already gotten my (nose-bleed altitude) balcony seats for my brother and myself. This will be his second Broadway outing, ever (his first being a preview performance of "Jersey Boys") so the bar is kinda high.

With YF, I will be interested to see just who the directorial talent was behind "The Producers" since the late Mr. Ockrent was succeeded by Miss Stroman.
