The Producers

Broadway's "Biggest Flop" turns into a smash hit comedy!

Joseph Rowntree Theatre Company

Thursday 8 February to Saturday 10 February 2018

The Producers is a hilarious musical comedy by acclaimed writer and director Mel Brooks, which took Broadway and the West End by storm, winning a record breaking 12 Tony Awards and 3 Olivier Awards.

Failing Broadway producer Max Bialystock and his mild mannered accountant Leo Bloom scheme to get rich from Broadway's biggest scam. Planning to capitalise on a "flop" show, the twosome secure "the worst play ever written" and "the worst director in town", to open on Broadway with the gloriously offensive and decadently inappropriate Springtime for Hitler.

Come and find out about the chaos that ensues as they cope with how this fool-proof flop actually turns out right!

With a raucous and witty book co-written by Mel Brooks and Thomas Meehan (Annie), The Producers keenly mocks Broadway traditions and takes no prisoners, proudly proclaiming itself "an equal opportunities offender!"

Suggested age 12+ Some swearing and probably not for the easily offended.
