Adapted from the Cult Comedy film by Mel Brooks, our Christmas musical THE PRODUCERS follows the sell-out success of Guys and Dolls. Don’t miss this hilarious and riotous night out.

“You know who I used to be? Max Bialystock! The King of Broadway. Six shows running at once. Lunch at Delmonico's. Two hundred dollar suits. Look at me. Look at me now! I'm wearing a cardboard belt!”

Theatre Producer Max Bialystock has a string of failures in his wake. But his downtrodden accountant Leo Bloom thinks that could be a good thing, a producer could make more money with a dud than a hit.

They set out to find the worst script, the worst director and the worst actors in the industry, produce the biggest flop in Broadway history, and make a heap of cash in the process. What could possibly go wrong?

This award-winning musical is fit to burst with unruly characters and show-stopping songs such as Springtime for Hitler, I Wanna be a Producer and When You Got It Flaunt It. 

A MEL BROOKS Musical. Directed by Raz Shaw. Book by MEL BROOKS and THOMAS MEEHAN. Music and Lyrics by MEL BROOKS. Original direction and choreography by SUSAN STROMAN. By special arrangement with STUDIOCANAL. Performed by arrangement with MUSIC THEATRE INTERNATIONAL (EUROPE) Limited.
