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

Steve Martin's update of an early 20th century Greman play was billed as a farce but missed that mark. How do I know? Well, the set had three doors and I don't recall any multiple slamming of said doors. I also don't recall any double takes or other staples of full blown farce. Finally, there was no absurd humiliations visited on the less likable characters. So instead we had a moderately amusing period comedy, well performed (but not over the top, unfortunately) by the actors, with intermittently funny bits. I was a little disappointed.
Adapted by Steve Martin from Die Hose by Carl Sternheim, directed by William Wilday and produced by Anya Ivanova, Tom Laskey and Brain Raine.
