The ProducersReturnPlaywright Mel Brooks & Thomas Meehan Composer Mel Brooks Lyricist Mel Brooks Source Title The Producers Producer Woodminster Summer Musicals [Website] Description Mel Brooks' classic cult comedy film is now a big Broadway musical, once again setting the standard for modern, outrageous, in-your-face humor. The plot is simple: a down-on-his-luck Broadway producer and his mild-mannered accountant come up with a scheme to produce the most notorious flop in history, thereby bilking their backers (all "little old ladies") out of millions of dollars. Only one thing goes awry: the gloriously offensive "Springtime For Hitler" is a smash hit!
"The Producers" skewers Broadway traditions and takes no prisoners as it proudly proclaims itself an "equal opportunity offender!"
