When a broke Broadway producer and his accountant hatch a scheme to deliberately mount a sure-fire flop so they can abscond with the unspent production money, what could possibly go wrong? It turns out the only thing worse than getting caught is having a surprise hit on their hands. Based on the 1968 film starring Gene Wilder and Zero Mostel, and featuring the hilarious show within a show called Springtime for Hitler, The Producers skewers the absurdities of musical theater even as it delivers one of the best (and most over-the-top) Broadway shows in recent years. With a book by Mel Brooks and Thomas Meehan and music and lyrics by Mel Brooks, the Broadway production nabbed 12 Tony Awards. Learn More

See the Reduced Shakespeare Company "reduce" all (okay, most) of Western Literature from Beowulf to War and Peace into 110 minutes of sidesplitting hilarity. Learn about all the Great Books you should have read in high school (but probably didn't). Wish Tennyson was tinier? Swift swifter? Then this show of "intellectual vaudeville" (NY Times) is for you! See it now in its Orange Country premiere prior to a full summer's run at the prestigious Kennedy Center in Washington DC. Bring family and friends, as this is the perfect group event.
