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.

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
