You can't see Nathan Lane and Matthew Broderick in Broadway's The Producers anymore, but you can see their pallid, waxy doppelgangers on 42nd Street. Madame Tussaud's, the London-based wax museum which lures millions of tourists to its doors each year, recently unveiled at its 42nd Street branch figures of actors Lane and Broderick as their Producers characters Max Bialystock and Leo Bloom. The two performers posed for the wax statues.
Madame Tussaud also has a wax museum in Amsterdam. The personalities on view at each museum are routinely rotated, keeping pace with changing fashions and the election of new heads of state. Actors are often featured, though theatre-based performers are rare. The London branch is the most popular tourist attraction in that city.
Times Square's Madame Tussaud is located on 42nd Street between Seventh and Eighth. Admission for adults is a hefty $22; $17 for kids 4 to 17.
