BWW Review: THE PRODUCERS at Pollard Theatre Company is Not to be MissedBWW Review: THE PRODUCERS at Pollard Theatre Company is Not to be Missed
by Robert Barossi - Apr 16, 2017

It's never a good idea to say that anything is a sure thing. On the other hand, when the creative team behind the Broadway smash The Producers put the show together, it must have seemed just a little bit like it could be a sure thing. You had the comic genius of Mel Brooks creating a musical based on his own hysterical movie, with the help of other Broadway heavy hitters like Susan Stroman, who directed and choreographed the original production, as well as major stars like Nathan Lane and Matthew Broderick. The show went on to become one of the biggest hits in modern  Broadway memory and the current production at the Pollard Theatre loses none of what made the original such an enormous success.

by Jeffrey Walker - Apr 11, 2017

Featuring a cast of seasoned veteran actors working beside some of the DC-area's most gifted young performers, Theater J offers a sublime take on Neil Simon's semi-autobiographical look at growing up poor and horny in Depression era Brooklyn. Through the lens of nostalgia, Simon's 34 year-old play is like a valentine to a hard-scrabble upbringing sprinkled with humor, rather than the laugh riot of THE ODD COUPLE or the later RUMORS.
