Shubert Alley Schadenfreude, Or Mel's Funk

Shubert Alley Schadenfreude, Or Mel's Funk

You've got a brand new Broadway musical follow-up to the top Tony winner of all time -- a show that begins previews this evening in spite of the ongoing labor strife at virtually every other Broadway theatre.

You're charging $450 for the top seats -- an all-time record.

You're not publicly sharing the grosses -- a time-honored tradition.

And apparently you're not even sharing your success with your fellow writers by paying your dues for the Dramatists Guild.

You're Mel Brooks.

Break a leg.

This is Steve On Broadway (SOB).
