No sooner will the London production of The Producers close in early January 2007, than it will re-open in another city.
This time, it’s Las Vegas and Producers creator Mel Brooks has even managed to lure The Hoff to play a leading role in the musical which is set to open on January 31 in the entertainment capital of the world.
David Hasselhoff will take on the role of gay musical director Roger DeBris, which will be staged at Paris Las Vegas.
The hit musical, which is about two New York producers looking to stage a flop musical, Springtime For Hitler, in order to scam little old ladies out of their money has already made millions for Brooks and the Vegas production looks set to emulate success around the world.
“I’m overjoyed that David Hasselhoff is going to play Roger DeBris in the Las Vegas production of The Producers,” said Mel Brooks. “He has an incredible comedic timing, terrific musical theatre experience and a stage presence that I think will be a perfect marriage with the role. And by the way, he has great legs for that dress.”
The Hoff says it is a dream come true to work with Brooks. “He has always been my favourite man of comedy. He is a giant, and it is a dream come true to be a part of one of the greatest Broadway musicals in theatre history.”
Tickets cost from $75.50 and go up to $143.50.
The move to Vegas by Hoff puts an end to rumours that the icon would be entering the jungle to star in British TV reality show “I’m A Celebrity, Get Me Out Of Here”.
