Mel Brooks' outrageous, Tony-winning musical comedy The Producers tells the story of broke Broadway producer Max Bialystock and his accountant, Leo Bloom. Desperate for cash, these two schemers hatch a plan to produce a musical that's sure to be a failure so they can cut and run with the unspent production money. But when their "big flop" turns out to be a huge hit, they're in trouble. Based on the classic 1968 film, and featuring the hilariously tasteless show-within-a-show Springtime for Hitler, The Producers skewers the over-the-top absurdities of musical theater while delivering a heartfelt tale of the true friendship that develops between two would-be con artists. Catch this Broadway hit that scored a record 12 Tony Awards when it comes to the Desert Stages Theatre in Scottsdale.

The New York Times raved "Perhaps no play this year inspired a greater sense of awe than Taylor Mac's audacious dive into the dysfunctional-family playpen of American theater." Check out the Stray Cat Theatre production of this subversive comedy at Tempe Center for the Arts.
