The Producers Book by Mel Brooks and Thomas Meham Music and lyrics by Mel Brooks Directed and choreographed by Tomé Cousin Oct. 18 -- 28, 2012 Rockwell Theater Thursday - Saturday @ 8:00 pm Saturday & Sunday @ 2:00 pm
Scheming partners Max Bialystock and Leo Bloom think they know the sure-fire way to make money on Broadway: fund a flop on the cheap and make off with the extra cash. No journey down the Great White Way would be complete without kitschy dance numbers, romantic interludes and over-the-top personalities; Mel Brooks delivers all of this, with a strong dose of humor. A favorite among theatre lovers and comedy lovers alike, The Producers has been a movie (1968), a Broadway musical (2001) and a movie musical about a Broadway musical based on a movie (2005). The Producers original Broadway production won 12 out of 15 Tony nominations, with the rare distinction of winning in every category it was nominated.
