The Producers

Under the right circumstances, a producer could make more money with a flop than he could with a hit.  And so begins one of the most hilarious cons in musical theatre history.  Max Bialystock used to be the king of Broadway, but after producing one too many flops, he’s now just a has-been forced into seducing little old ladies for money.  With the reluctant help from Bloom, Max goes in search of the worst musical ever.  Will it be a flop?  It better, or they might find themselves in prison.  The Producers is an uproariously funny musical that will have you grinning from ear to ear throughout.
