THE PRODUCERS

Book by Mel Brooks and Thomas Meehan • Music and Lyrics by Mel Brooks
Based on the 1968 Film

 

June 24 - July 26, 2015 on the Mainstage

 

 The names "Bialystock and Bloom" should strike hysteria in anyone familiar with Mel Brooks’ best comedy. What could possibly go wrong when washed-up Broadway producer, Max Bialystock, and his mousy accountant, Leo Bloom, scheme to make a mint by raising a million bucks to produce a 100,000 dollar flop in the form of a gay romp entitled Springtime for Hitler? THE PRODUCERS is a truly “boffo” hit, winning a record twelve Tony Awards and wowing capacity crowds night after night with its modern, outrageous, and in-your-face humor. THE PRODUCERS is part of the Contemporary Series.

Hoping for a quiet weekend in the country with some guests, David Bliss, a novelist, and his wife Judith, a retired actress, find that an impossible dream when their high-spirited children Simon and Sorel appear with guests of their own. A house full of drama waits to be ignited as misunderstandings occur and tempers flare. With Judith’s new flame and David’s newest literary ‘inspiration’ keeping company as the children follow suit, the Bliss family lives up to its name as the ‘quiet weekend’ comes to an exhausting and hilarious finale worthy of Feydeau. HAY FEVER is part of the Classic Series.
