Entertaining Songs, Dance Choreography and A Show Full of Laughter are Provided With The Producers on Broadway
Features: The Producers was a well-acclaimed Broadway musical that ran from April 2002- April 2007 at St. James Theater, playing over 2500 performances. Stars such as Nathan Lane and Matthew Broderick landed starring roles in this hilarious comedy musical about a greedy, washed up theater producer, Max Bialystock, itching for another hit show and his accountant, Leo Bloom, who hops on his bandwagon. Joining forces, these two money-hungry men create the worst Broadway show to ever exist.
Why We Go: The Producers on Broadway combined sharply written lines with brilliant comedy, award-winning acting and musical performances that kept audiences captivated.
- Celebrity Actors: Nathan Lane as producer, Max Bialystock, and Matthew Broderick as his accountant, Leo Bloom, played their roles with the outstanding talent, attracting audiences from around the world to this hit Broadway musical.
- Comedy: While some musicals can be on the cheesy side, The Producers musical was packed full of comedy. The leading characters get themselves into heaps of trouble throughout the play, attempting to trick investors into paying their way to fame and leaving audience members rolling in laughter.
- Award-Winning Musical: The Producers NYC won an incredible 12 Tony Awards during its first year on Broadway. Wining awards included "Best Musical," "Best Scenic Design," "Best Costume Design," various best actor awards, and many more, reflecting the talent and incredible stage craft this cast and crew possessed.
Inside Knowledge: The Producers musical play stemmed from the 1968 Mel Brooks film with the same name and was tweaked a bit by Mel Brooks and Thomas Meehan, with the same general storyline and characters remaining the same.
Do's and Don'ts:
- Do Expect Some Adult Themes: The Producers musical was rated PG13 due to comedic references to sex and other adult subject matters. The terrible Broadway play they produce also features a song and dance number about Hitler and his rise to power.
- Do See it More Than Once: Audience members who have seen the movie have often preferred the Broadway musical, due to the live energy and interaction. If The Producers opens back up in New York, don't hesitate to see the play version.
- Don't Expect a Quiet Audience: Roaring laughter was common throughout the St. James Theater when The Producers on Broadway was playing.
- Don't Fret Over Front Row: St. James Theater provides great seating from all sections and sometimes further sections from the stage give a better view of the full stage and dance numbers.
