"It has been an honor and privilege to have worked with Mel Brooks and Susan Stroman and an outstanding cast and crew," stated David Hasselhoff. "This has been one of the most gratifying experiences of my career in addition to having been so much fun and I'm sorry to say goodbye."

The Mel Brooks-Thomas Meehan musical comedy had its gala premiere at Paris Las Vegas on Feb. 9. The production opened on Broadway on April 19, 2001, to unanimous rave reviews and is the recipient of the most Tony Awards in Broadway History (12, including Best Musical).
