The Producers

Book by Mel Brooks and Thomas Meehan, Music & Lyrics by Mel Brooks

“Fun, funny and alive!” Mel Brooks turned his iconic cult classic film into a record breaking musical for the stage. A hotshot Broadway producer, who has lost his luck and his partner in crime, attempt to create and produce the greatest failed Broadway show in history. They make a plan to raise $2 million, hire the worst director and actors, and choose the most offensive and doomed show. Although it seems fool proof, their plan may not be as smashing as these two clowns hope. This wildly hilarious comedy will carry you along a journey of dreams and friendship that is surprisingly genuine and poignant. The Producers received the most Tony Awards in theatre history and is considered to be one of the funniest shows ever written.

REVIEWS & TESTIMONIALS

The splendid performers are all utterly at home in their roles, working furiously but totally at ease. Rich, smooth vocals and electrically fluid movements permeate the performance from beginning to end. Everyone on stage is having the time of their life, and so are we.

This was the 5th Barter show we attended this year and it was "hands-down" the best. The show was well-cast and the entire cast brought their A-game performances. We can't remember a show at Barter or anywhere with so much audience laughter.
