Direct from Broadway, Lee Roy Reams (Hello, Dolly!, 42nd Street) and Bill Nolte (Never Gonna Dance, Dance of the Vampires) joined the Las Vegas cast of the smash Mel Brooks musical comedy The Producers at the Paris Las Vegas on May 7th.
The Producers also stars Brad Oscar as Max, Larry Raben as Leo and Leigh Zimmerman as Ulla, as well as Reams as Roger de Bris and Nolte as Franz Liebkind. The show tells the story of "down-on-his-luck theatrical producer, Max Bialystock and Leo Bloom, a mousy accountant. Together, with the help of their flamboyant director, Roger DeBris, they hatch the ultimate scam: raise more money than you need for a sure-fire Broadway flop and pocket the difference. Their 'sure-fire' theatrical fiasco?....None other than the musical Springtime for Hitler!," state press notes. The show features Tony Award-winning book by Brooks and Thomas Meehan, Tony Award-winning music and lyrics by Brooks and Tony Award-winning direction and choreography by Susan Stroman.
"I'm overjoyed Lee Roy and Bill are joining the Las Vegas production of The Producers," said Mel Brooks. "Both Lee Roy and Bill are superb actors that have perfected their roles. They will both be a great asset to the Vegas company," he continued.
