Broadway veteran Lee Roy Reams has joined the cast of Broadway's The Producers.
He plays the role of flamboyant director Roger DeBris, whom he also portrayed for two years in the First National Company of the Mel Brooks hit. He won both the Carbonell Award and the Helen Hayes Award for his work.
The well-known song and dance man has appeared on Broadway in Applause opposite Lauren Bacall; in David Merrick's original 42nd Street; Beauty and the Beast as Lumiere; as Albin/ZaZa in La Cage aux Folles; as Cornelius in Hello, Dolly!; as Henry Spofford in Lorelei; as Will Parker in Richard Rodgers' revival of Oklahoma!; in Sweet Charity with Gwen Verdon, and An Evening with Jerry Herman.
The Producers continues at the St. James Theatre. The show has a Tony Award-winning book by Mel Brooks and Thomas Meehan, Tony Award-winning music and lyrics by Mel Brooks, and Tony Award-winning direction and choreography by Susan Stroman.
Based on Brooks' 1968 Academy Award-winning film of the same name, The Producers is the story of down-on-his-luck theatrical producer, Max Bialystock, and Leo Bloom, a mousy accountant. Together they hatch the ultimate scam: raise more money than you need for a sure-fire Broadway flop and pocket the difference.
