Everyone flips for a flop in the mixed-up, utterly hilarious world of The Producers, Mel Brooks' boffo Broadway hit. An outrageous musical adapted from Brooks' equally outrageous movie, The Producers is the story of Max Bialystock, a hard-up Broadway producer, and Leo Bloom, his put-upon accountant. Desperate for cash, the two hatch a plan to produce a "surefire flop." The musical will close immediately ... and the unspent production money will be theirs for the taking. What could possibly go wrong? Featuring the riotous show-within-a-show, Springtime for Hitler, The Producers skewers the over-the-top absurdities of musical theater while delivering an unexpectedly heartfelt tale of true friendship. Anne Gesling directs this fresh production from the Morgan-Wixson Theatre. Learn More

We had a fun night out overall, but the premise of the play was darker than one would expect for a comedy. The main actresses did a great job of portraying their mismatched friendship, but there was far too much emphasis on the disturbing nature of Flo's OCD behavior.
We didn't see the original remake by Neil Simon, but this version of the story really missed the "funny" mark. The only hysteria going on came from Flo after her marital split, and consequent heartache and heartbreak. There wasn't much comedic value from Olive's gal pals becoming overwrought with worry over Flo's possible suicidal ideologies.
There were some laugh-out-loud parts of the play once the "Spaniard brothers" came onto the scene. The language gap -- caused by their thick accents and misused colloquialisms -- was definitely the highlight of the performance.

I love the Morgan-Wixson theater, and have been thrilled by many of its presentations. The script for this Odd Couple was superb. The move from male to female oriented humor was, I think, superb and appealing to men and women alike. ...continued
