MEET THE PRODUCERS
A MEL BROOKS MUSICAL
AT THE STAGE DOOR THEATRE’S
NEW HOME IN LAUDERHILL
Based on Mel Brooks’ classic 1968 film, The Producers is the story of Max Bialystock, the one time King of Broadway producers, hungry to strike it rich,and Leo Bloom, an accountant with dreams of someday becoming a theatre producer, who discover that they could get richer by producing a flop than a hit and start by finding the worst show, worst director, and worst actors. When their new production, “Springtime for Hitler,” turns out to be a smash success, the plan is thrown off and the partners' lives are thrown into chaos.
With dozens of big and bit parts alike, no shortage of show stopping musical numbers, and Brooks' signature humor keeping audiences in stitches. The Producers won 12 out of its nomination, setting the record for most win in history and becoming one of the few musicals to win in every category for which it was nominated-it received two nominations for leading actor and three for featured actor, which still stands today.
The Producers will run from January 18 to February 10, 2019. Tickets are $48 at Ticketmaster or the theatre box office, located at their new address 3800 N.W. 11th Place, Lauderhill. For more information call 954-344-7765 or 954-777-2055.
