Bialystock and Bloom! Those names should strike terror and hysteria in anyone familiar with a href="http://mtishows.com/show_detail.asp?showid=000361#"Mel Brooks/a' classic cult comedy film. Now as a big Broadway musical, strongTHE PRODUCERS/strong once again sets the standard for modern, outrageous, in-your-face humor. It is a truly "boffo" hit, winning a record twelve Tony Awards and wowing capacity crowds night after night.p 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 show is a smash hit! 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 is a lesson in broad comic construction. At the core of the insanely funny adventure is a poignant emotional journey of two very different men who become friends./p With a truly hysterical book co-written by a href="http://mtishows.com/show_detail.asp?showid=000361#"Mel Brooks/a and a href="http://mtishows.com/show_detail.asp?showid=000361#"Thomas Meehan/a (a href="http://mtishows.com/show_detail.asp?showid=000005"span style="font-weight: bold;"ANNIE/spanstrong/strong/a) and music and lyrics by Mr. a href="http://mtishows.com/show_detail.asp?showid=000361#"Brooks/a , strongTHE PRODUCERS/strong skewers Broadway traditions and takes no prisoners as it proudly proclaims itself an "equal opportunity offender!"
