Sillerman has another hit on his hands


Robert F.X. Sillerman has been out of the radio business for some time now, but he continues to have success in other areas. Ticket sales began this week for "Young Frankenstein," with hundreds lining up to be among the first to snare tickets to what’s already being heralded at a likely Broadway hit. The cheapest seat (other than a special lottery for some primo tickets at only 25 bucks) is 50 bucks and they go as high as 450.
What’s fueling the hot ticket sales, in part, is the success of its predecessor, "The Producers," which is still playing on Broadway, and on the road, more than six years after its 2001 debut. Sillerman and Mel Brooks are the producers of "Young Frankenstein," which, like "The Producers," is a musical based on a Brooks movie. Previews begin October 11th and the show officially opens November 8th.
