Based on Mel Brooks' 1967 film of the same name. What happens when you set out to make a flop? Mel Brooks' humor rocketed this show to legendary status, winning the most Tonys in Broadway history!
The Producers is the story of down-on-his-luck theatrical producer Max Bialystock and Leo Bloom, a mousy accountant. Together, they hatch the ultimate scam: Raise more money than you need for a sure-fire Broadway fiasco...and pocket the difference. Their Broadway brainchild is none other than Springtime for Hitler.
The Producers has become a Broadway phenomenon, turning the tradition of a Broadway musical on its head and earning more Tony Awards than any other show in the history of the Great White Way. With tunes and a book by superstar comedian Mel Brooks and co-bookwriter Thomas Meehan (Hairspray), this big-time Broadway musical is truly one of the funniest shows around. The success of the show has made way for a remake of the big-screen version due out in 2005 and featuring original stars Nathan Lane and Matthew Broderick, as well as Uma Thurman and Will Ferrell.
Stop by The Producers to visit "Little Old Lady Land," hear Ulla belt and laugh so hard you won't know what to do with yourself. "Everything you've heard is 100% true," says Clive Barnes of the New York Post. The Producers is "a cast-iron, super-duper mammoth old-time Broadway hit!"
