About the show

Mel Brooks' adaptation of his movie - an old-fashioned, slightly risqué Broadway musical comedy. More…

"The Producers’"tells the story of a down-on-his-luck Broadway producer, Max Bialystock, and a nerdy, young accountant, Leo Bloom, who concoct a scheme to raise thousands of dollars from backers and then put on a flop of a show. With all the money that will be leftover, the pair will be rich! Only one thing goes wrong: the show is a gigantic hit! "The Producers" skewers Broadway traditions and takes no prisoners as it proudly proclaims itself an “equal opportunity offender!”
