A German theatre company is keenly interested, Sky News reports, and is sending a group of German theatergoers to New York next month to appraise the musical which features the song "Springtime for Hitler".
Says producer Mel Brooks, "If they like it, and say `this will go down nicely', then we'll do it. They will decide whether or not this is just too unspeakably rude for the Germans."
The musical is a stage version of 77 year old Brooks' Oscar-winning 1968 film. It has been Broadway's biggest recent success and won an unprecedented 12 Tony Awards.
