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
