      PPP presents THE PRODUCERS

      PPP presents the Broadway Smash Mel Brooks Comedy Musica *** THE PRODUCERS *** Book by Mel Brooks and Thomas Meehan Music and Lyrics by Mel Brooks Based on the 1968 Film Directed by Steven Dow & Ashlie Workman Friday SEP 18 at 7:30p Saturday SEP 19 at 7:30p Sunday SEP 20 at 2:00p Friday SEP 25 at 7:30p Saturday SEP 26 at 7:30p Sunday SEP 27 at 2:00p Possum Hall 441 Old Laurel Road Georgetown, DE 19947 About the show... A scheming producer and his mousy accountant aim to produce the biggest flop on Broadway in Mel Brooks' laugh-out-loud spectacle. It is a truly "boffo" hit, winning a record twelve Tony Awards and wowing capacity crowds night after night. Bialystock and Bloom! Those names should strike terror and hysteria in anyone familiar with Mel Brooks' classic cult comedy film. Now as a big Broadway musical, The Producers once again sets the standard for modern, outrageous, in-your-face humor. The plot is simple: a down-on-his-luck Broadway producer and his mild-mannered accountant come up with a scheme to produce the most notorious flop in history, thereby bilking their backers (all "little old ladies") out of millions of dollars. Only one thing goes awry: the show is a smash hit! The antics of Max Bialystock and Leo Bloom as they maneuver their way fecklessly through finding a show (the gloriously offensive "Springtime for Hitler"), hiring a director, raising the money and finally going to prison for their misdeeds is a lesson in broad comic construction. At the core of the insanely funny adventure is a poignant emotional journey of two very different men who become friends. 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!"
