Come see the Silhouette Stages production of the twelve time Tony award winning Mel Brooks musical The Producers, March 7-10, 2013.
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 out of millions of dollars. Only one thing goes awry: the show is a smash hit! The show chronicles the antics of Max Bialystock and Leo Bloom as they maneuver their way fecklessly through finding a show (the gloriously offensive "Springtime For Hitler"), hiring a director, raising the money and finally going to prison for their misdeeds. At the core of the insanely funny adventure is a poignant emotional journey of two very different men who become friends. This show skewers Broadway traditions and takes no prisoners as it proudly proclaims itself an "equal opportunity offender!"
Mo Dutterer and Ric Ryder are co-directing, with musical direction by Michael Tan, and
choreography by Tina DeSimone.
The cast includes:
Max Bialystock - Ryan Geiger
Leo Bloom - Brian Sackett
Ulla - Rachel Weir
Carmen Ghia - Kevin James Logan
