Tzs the Season
the end of the show they realize
they've found something else: "They've
found friendship and love, which is
more important than any other goal
that they could have achieved," Brooks
said, "and kids are going to love that.
High schools are going to love that."
Brooks called his songs "jaunty and
jolly." Among the new songs he
devised for the stage are "Keep It
Gay," in which effeminate
designer/director Roger DeBris
explains his philosophy; "Along Came
Bialy," a tap dance done by crippled
old ladies in metal walkers; "Haben
Sie Gehort Das Deutsche Band," writ-
ten in the style of a German beer-hall
song and presented by neo-Nazi Franz
Liebkind dressed as a Hitler youth;
and "When You Got It, Flaunt It," the
philosophy of the scantily dressed
Ulla, the Swedish bombshell.
Brooks ended his group interview by
referring to his favorite cartoon from
the New Yorker magazine.
As he described the cartoon,
"There's a man and a woman standing
outside a doorway at the elevator. The
doors open to the apartment and peo-
ple in the apartment are staring at
them, glowering. They just have angry
faces and the woman is mortified, and
the guy says, 'I don't know, when Mel
Brooks does it he gets away with it."'
"It's a wonderful cartoon," Brooks
said. "I've got the original."
