Back in the Saddle: Mel Brooks Heads to Proctors
Comedian-screenwriter-director-actor-composer-etc. Mel Brooks – best known as the slightly deranged mind behind such enduring film comedies as “The Producers” and “Young Frankenstein,” as well as their transformation into hit Broadway shows – is headed to Proctors in Schenectady this fall for a live appearance in conjunction with another of his classic films, “Blazing Saddles.”
“A Hilarious Live Conversation With Mel Brooks Back in the Saddle Again: Plus a Screening of ‘Blazing Saddles'” lands at Proctors’ Mainstage at 7:30pm on Friday, October 16. Following a screening of the 1974 movie, the 89-year-old Brooks will tell stories about his extraordinary career and engage in a Q&A session with the audience.
Priced from $40-$150, tickets are slated to go on sale to the general public at 10am on Thursday (August 20).
