The Kings of Broadway: Lane, Broderick, Bart, and Oscar Will Return to The Producers on December 30
Lane won a Tony Award for his performance as the scheming Broadway producer Max Bialystock and Matthew Broderick was nominated for his work as the nebbishy accountant Leo Bloom. In addition to the return of the two stars, Tony nominee Roger Bart will once again fill his original role of Carmen Ghia, the "common law assistant" to renowned theatrical director Roger De Bris (played by Tony winner Gary Beach); and Brad Oscar, who was nominated for his portrayal of Nazi playwright Franz Liebkind, will stand by for Lane. (Oscar was Lane's original standby and assumed the role of Max soon after Lane's departure in 2002.) During the period of Lane and Broderick's return, the show will feature John Treacy Egan in Oscar's original role of Franz and Angie Schworer as Swedish bombshell secretary Ulla.
