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

Modern city life starts to prove too much for one middle-aged couple living on New York City’s Upper East Side during an intense summer heat wave and a prolonged garbage strike — they’re cracking under the strain of the rat race! A true master of his craft, Simon has a gift for taking a weighty subject and, without losing sight of its basic seriousness, treating it with wit, compassion and sympathetic humor.
Neil Simon’s “The Prisoner of Second Avenue,” which debuted on Broadway in 1971, is the story of a neurotic New York advertising salesman named Mel Edison who loses his job after 20 years, and has a difficult time adjusting to working from home and allowing his wife to become the breadwinner. As Mel realizes he is no longer in control of his world, he’s falls apart. With Neil Simon wielding the pen, Mel’s pain is the catalyst for huge laughs as well as heartfelt empathy.
