The Vanity Theater production of The Producers is set to open this weekend. This musical opened on Broadway in 2001, based on Mel Brooks’ 1968 film of the same name. It has been hailed as a modern, outrageous, hilarious musical comedy.
The Producers opens as a down-on-his-luck New York producer recruits his accountant to partner with him to pull off a scam. They scheme to create one of the worst shows to hit Broadway and then run away with millions of investment dollars when it flops.
As the audience watches it all unfold, they will delight in the antics, the crazy satirical humor, the mocking jabs and the complete wittiness. Definitely not written to be a family show, The Producers is designed as a PG-13, adult evening for those who come with an open mind for humor and entertainment.
