Audiences attending the event will hear tunes from Brooks work on stage and screen. The multi-hyphenate, who appeared on Broadway earlier this year, won his first Oscar in 1964 for writing and narrating the animated short The Critic and his second for the screenplay of his first feature film, The Producers, in 1968. He received three 2001 Tony Awards for The Producers. The stage musical adaptation of his movie holds the record for the most Tonys ever won by a Broadway production. He followed that success with Young Frankenstein, which ran on Broadway from 2007 to 2009 and opened in London’s West End in fall 2017.

54 Celebrates Mel Brooks is produced by Jen Sandler and Michael Kushner with Ben Caplan serving as music director.
