The New York Post reports that the producers of the champagne dinner, which also included a prime orchestra seat to the Mel Brooks musical, have canceled the expensive evening due to poor tickets sales. One of the show's producers, Richard Frankel, told the Post, "Tickets were selling, but they were selling slowly."

Reportedly, only 100 of the 300 available seats had been sold; sales for the $600 show-only New Year's Eve seats are also sluggish, and those may be reduced to $250-$300.

Nathan Lane, who won a Tony Award for the 2001 Mel Brooks musical comedy, and Matthew Broderick, who was nominated, return to the Tony winning show starting Dec. 30 for 112 performances.

The Producers plays the St. James Theatre, 246 W. 44th Street. For tickets, go to Click here.
