David Johnson & Richard Lafleur Hit the Road Tonight in New National Tour of THE PRODUCERS

Award-winning comic sensation THE PRODUCERS takes the stage across the U.S. as Big League Productions, Inc. brings the musical theater masterpiece to more than 50 cities starting tonight, October 20, in Elmira, NY. THE PRODUCERS is the hilarious Mel Brooks smash-hit that took Broadway by storm in 2001, winning a record-breaking 12 Tony Awards and three Olivier Awards.

Based on the Academy Award-winning 1968 film of the same name, this Mel Brooks masterpiece chronicles the side-splitting adventures of washed-up Broadway producer Max Bialystock and his mild-mannered accountant Leo Bloom, as they scheme to get rich quick by producing the most notorious flop in the history of showbiz. It's a comic tour-de-force that spoofs the big, old-fashioned Broadway musical while paying tribute to it at the same time.

Often hailed as the funniest musical of all time, THE PRODUCERS features a riotous mix of eccentric characters and show-stopping songs including "I Wanna Be a Producer," "When You Got It, Flaunt It," "Prisoners of Love," and of course "Springtime for Hitler," as well as Susan Stroman's eye-popping Tony-Award winning production numbers.

Written by Mel Brooks and Thomas Meehan, with music and lyrics by Mel Brooks, THE PRODUCERS features Susan Stroman's Tony Award-winning direction and choreography recreated on tour by director Nigel West and choreographer Lauren Kadel.

David Johnson stars as the infamous Max Bialystock with Richard Lafleur playing the role of his mousy accountant Leo Bloom. The cast also includes Thomas Slater as Franz Liebkind, Jessica Ernest as Ulla, John Ben Boss as Roger De Bris and J. Ryan Carroll in the role of Carman Ghia.

Rounding out the cast of THE PRODUCERS is Michael O'Connor, Taylor Eliason, Charlie Tingen, Allegra Berglund, Mandie Russak, Marie Lemon, Courtney Brady, Samantha Martin, Priscilla Curtis, Elyse Dwenger, Kelsey Moore, Heather Klobukowski, Anne Marie Snyder, Nick Raynor, A.J. Hunsucker, Ford Haueser, Walter Tucker and Zach Hawthorne.
