It's outrageous and hilarious, not to mention the winner of 12 Tony® Awards! Based on Mel Brooks' Academy Award-winning film, The Producers is the story of down-on-his-luck producer Max Bialystock, his hysterically awkward accountant Leo Bloom and their "sure-fire" scheme to get rich quick. The plan? To raise more money than they need to mount a guaranteed Broadway flop - Springtime for Hitler - and head to Rio with the cash when the curtain comes crashing down. Audiences will be doubled over with laughter as they sing and dance their way through the greatest show biz scam there ever was! This Tony® Award-winning score is a guilty pleasure with hits such as "I Wanna Be a Producer," "Where Did We Go Right" and "Til Him."
