The one and only Mel Brooks will make a rare appearance in Milwaukee, providing insights into his life and career, including the making of the legendary Blazing Saddles. The evening will open with a screening of that film on the Riverside’s big screen, followed by a live conversation and Q&A with Brooks. It’ll be a deserved romp back in the saddle for the comedic genius — belly laughs included with the price of admission.
7 p.m. June 11 at the Riverside Theater, Milwaukee. $50, $80, $90, and $125. pabsttheater.org.
