For as gay as the musicals on the Great White Way are, Broadway characters and their relationships are disturbingly straight.
So when we get a character that openly queer, we celebrate it, even if it's Hitler.
Of course we are talking about Roger Elizabeth DeBris, the over the top musical theater director who winds up performing the gay Hitler in the musical within the musical “Springtime for Hitler” in “Mel Brooks’ The Producers.”
Today we celebrate the 20th anniversary of the Tony Tony Tony award-winning “Mel Brooks’ The Producers” on Broadway with actor John B Boss, who has played the fierce drag queen gay Hitler in over 230 shows including the official touring production.
Listen as John B Boss chats with us about the iconic role and John's upcoming Christmas gig as a virtual Santa Claus to all the good little children of the world.

➤ There’s a petition to keep James Cordon out of the new Wicked movie.
➤ Is it possible in real life for crooked theater producers to create a flop in order to rob investors?
