One of Broadway's most beloved musicals,The Producers, will get the Vegas treatment, with David Hasselhoff to play the outrageous, flamboyant Roger DeBris.
The musical follows the story of down-on-his-luck theater producer Max Bialystock and his timid accountant, Leo Bloom. With the help of director DeBris, they scam to raise more money than needed for a surefire Broadway flop and pocket the difference.
"I'm overjoyed that David Hasselhoff is going to play Roger DeBris in the Las Vegas production of The Producers," the musical's creator, Mel Brooks, said in a press release. "He has an incredible comedic timing, terrific musical theater experience, and a stage presence that I think will be a perfect marriage with the role. And by the way, he has great legs for that dress."
The production will be housed in the renowned Paris Las Vegas, and performances are scheduled to begin January 31. For more information go to www.parislasvegas.com. (The Advocate)
