Hysterically funny Mel Brooks classic starring Gene Wilder, Zero Mostel, and Dick Shaw as "LSD".

In a scam to make some quick cash, a Broadway play producer and his accountant set out to make the most god aweful play in the history of mankind. Their play, "Springtime for Hitler" turns out unimaginably terrible but the audience loves it. Side splitting humor.

Gene Wilder's character is Leo Bloom, Zero Mostel's character is Max Bialytock. Bialystock (or Bialystok) is a region of Poland, the name meaning "white rolling hills".

The Producers is about to open on Broadway staring Nathan Lane as Max Bialystock and Matthew Broderick as Leo Bloom.
The $10.5 million show already has 13$ million in advance ticket sales
Mel Brooks, wrote the songs.
Brooks wrote and directed the 1968 film of the same name, for which he won an Oscar for best original screenplay.
The musical already has gotten rave reviews in Chicago, but Brooks admits he wants accolades in New York.

"It sounds crass and crude, but it's true. ... You wanna kill 'em on Broadway," he says. "That's the Great White Way. That's the dream of every little Brooklyn Jewish kid who ever thought about show business."

The Producers has been nominated for 15 Tony Awards.
