Based on the hit 1968 film of the same name, this Mel Brooks comedic masterpiece follows the hilarious adventures of washed-up Broadway producer Max Bialystock and his mild-mannered accountant, Leo Bloom, as they scheme to get rich quick by producing the most notorious flop in Broadway history! It’s a comic tour-de-force that spoofs the big, old-fashioned Broadway musical while simultaneously paying tribute to it. “The Producers” won a record setting twelve Tony Awards including Best Musical, Best Book of a Musical, and Best Musical Score. The score includes such hits as “I Wanna Be a Producer”, “When You Got It, Flaunt It”, “Springtime for Hitler”, and “Prisoners of Love”.
