The Theater Department’s production of “The Producers; A Mel Brooks Musical” opens this Fri., May 12 and runs through Sun., May 21. Tickets are available at the door or at Brown Paper Tickets.
The Producers is based around the character of Max Bialystock, a down and out Broadway producer whose latest work flopped on opening night. Max, plagued by his former success and scrambling to stay afloat, experiences a change in fortune when downtrodden accountant, Leo Bloom, discovers there is money to be made in Max’s theatrical failure. As a result, the two formerly defeated business men form an unlikely union with the goal of creating the world’s worst musical.
The plot develops as the duo enlists the help of ridiculous and often farcical characters on the way such as former Nazi and on-going Third Reich enthusiast Franz Liebkind, Ulla the blonde bombshell secretary/receptionist and the flamboyant homosexual director Roger De Bris. As a result of the characters’ combined brainpower and ludicrous behavior, “Spring Time for Hitler” is born in Broadway.
