Photo Flash: First Look at Joel Newsome and Stuart Zagnit in THE PRODUCERS at The Engeman

The John W. Engeman Theater presents THE PRODUCERS. Performances began last night, May 28, 2015 at 8:00pm and will run through July 12, 2015. BroadwayWorld has a first look at the cast onstage below!

THE PRODUCERS tells the story of a down-on-his-luck Broadway producer, Max Bialystock, and a nerdy, young accountant, Leo Bloom, who concoct a scheme to raise thousands of dollars from backers and then put on a flop of a show. With all the money that will be left over, the pair will be rich! Only one thing goes wrong: the show is a gigantic hit! With a truly hysterical book co-written by Mel Brooks and Thomas Meehan (Annie) and music and lyrics by Mr. Brooks, THE PRODUCERS skewers Broadway traditions and takes no prisoners as it proudly proclaims itself an "equal opportunity offender!"
