Peter Kay Plays It Gay

Posted in Theatre on November, 11 2006 7:03 PM

Peter Kay is to fulfill a lifetime ambition by performing in the upcoming tour of Mel Brooks' musical The Producers.

Kay says that he fell in love with the film when he was younger and had planned to adapt it into a stage musical but Brooks did it first.

In the show, Kay will be playing the theatre director that leads Bialystock and Bloom choose for their proposed show, 'Springtime For Hitler.' Their selection process being based on him being the worst choice possible.

Kay's character is Roger DeBris, an overt gay and extremely camp director who directs numbers that would make Busby Berkeley think were too chintzy.

Kay is doing the show for three months in his homeland, Manchester.
