The Surreal, Singular Relevance of ‘Blazing Saddles’ in 2016

Mel Brooks came to the Wang Theatre here in Boston on October 22nd, and since I was planning on seeing him live anyways, I figured I might as well write about the experience for Paste Magazine too. So I did! You should just go read the piece. I don’t feel like blowing another hundred or so words describing that night. Suffice to say that seeing Blazing Saddles on the big screen for the first time, and seeing Brooks on stage in person, was a big damn deal for me.
