Mel Brooks has milked a new revenue source out of the cash cow that is The Producers. The producer-composer-librettist-funnyman has put out a new book, modestly titled, "The Producers! The Biggest Hit in the History of Broadway! How We Did It."
King Midas himself will appear at the 600 Fifth Avenue Barnes and Noble bookstore on Dec. 3 to sign this mighty tome. The event will take place from 12:30 PM to 1:30 PM.
The Producers won a record number of Tonys this past June, including trophies for best musical, best score (for Brooks), best director of a musical (for Susan Stroman), and best actor (for Nathan Lane). Even after the Sept. 11 attacks, it continued to be the most sought after ticket in town.
