Oscar, Emmy, Grammy, and Tony Award winner Mel Brooks (Blazing Saddles, Young Frankenstein, The Producers) will perform on the Broadway stage as part of the recently announced In Residence on Broadway series at the Lunt-Fontanne Theatre. Brooks's performances are scheduled for June 17 and 18.

The unscripted show will combine off-the-cuff comedy, unbelievable personal stories, and film clips from some of his most memorable work.

In Residence On Broadway is produced by Live Nation, the Araca Group, and EBG (Entertainment Benefits Group).
The In Residence on Broadway production team will include lighting designer Mike Baldassari, sound designer Peter Hylenski, and sound designer Garth Helm. PRG will provide lighting and sound equipment.
