When a once-great but now-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

Okay, let me start by saying, local theater can be hit & miss. This one is definitely a miss. Maybe my expectations were too high, I saw a play/musical based on Hank Williams life about 3 years ago at the Laguna Playhouse that was excellent & was expecting something along those lines. This was more of a karaoke concert of Johnny Cash songs. I wanted a play about the life of Johnny Cash, with his songs in there that were written about the things he was going through. It was all cheesy musical- nothing that could be considered acting. What there was of a plot was convoluted, neither my husband nor myself could figure out who was who at any given moment. Johnny's voice/music is iconic this didn't even come close. The redeeming performers were the brunette, the old man who did the bass part on the" Egg Sucking Dog" song, & the stand up bass-Then again, maybe the second act was better- but we didn't stick around to find out
Created by Richard Maltby Jr.
Conceived by William Meade
Orchestrations by Steven Bishop and Jeff Lisenby
This musical revue is a unique way of recognizing the music and talent of Johnny Cash. His path led him to perform rock and roll, rockabilly, folk and gospel music as well as appear in movies and television. Cash died in 2003, but his legend lives on in Ring of Fire with songs such as "Country Boy," "Five Feet High and Rising," "In the Sweet By and By," "I've Been Everywhere," "Folsom Prison Blues," "Man in Black," "Boy Named Sue," "Jackson," "I Walk the Line" and "Ring of Fire." This show is a rompin'-stompin' good time for the whole family!
