BWW TV LA Exclusive: Inside Rehearsal with Kind, Ferguson, Romijn, Beach, Bart, Cook & More for THE PRODUCERS at The Hollywood Bowl!
One of the biggest events in Los Angeles this summer is Mel Brooks' multiple Tony Award winning musical THE PRODUCERS in the home stretch of its much anticipated July 27th opening at the legendary Hollywood Bowl. Broadway's smash hit stars Richard Kind as Max Bialystock and Jesse Tyler Ferguson as Leo Bloom. And, BroadwayWorld's own Michael Sterling (Los Angeles Correspondent for BWW TV) and Jerry Evans of the JLE Media Group, Inc. were on hand last Friday, July 20 at rehearsal to chat it up with all of the stars of the grandiose production. Kind and Ferguson are joined by Rebecca Romijn, Gary Beach, and Roger Bart.
Susan Stroman, winner of the Tony Award for both direction and choreography for the original Broadway stage musical of "The Producers," will direct and choreograph the fully staged production of THE PRODUCERS at the Hollywood Bowl. In 2005, Stroman made her directorial debut as a feature filmmaker with a film adaptation of "The Producers." The movie was nominated for four Golden Globe Awards. The Musical Director for THE PRODUCERS at the Hollywood Bowl is Kevin Stites.
From the brilliantly comedic mind of Mel Brooks comes this insanely funny adventure – a down-on-his-luck Broadway producer and his mild-mannered accountant concoct a get-rich scheme to bilk their investors out of millions by producing the most notorious flop in history. Based on Brooks' Oscar-winning 1968 film, "The Producers," with score and lyrics by Mel Brooks and a book by Mel Brooks and Thomas Meehan, became a Broadway smash hit winning a record-breaking 12 Tony Awards.
THE PRODUCERS will have three performances only at the Hollywood Bowl -- Friday and Saturday, July 27 and 28, at 8:00pm, and Sunday, July 29, at 7:30pm. Single tickets are available in person at the Hollywood Bowl box office, by calling 323.850.2000 and at HollywoodBowl.com.
