A Mel Brooks’ Musical Comedy!
Book co-written by Mel Brooks and Thomas Meehan (Annie) and music and lyrics by Mel Brooks,
This hysterical comedy sets the standard for modern, outrageous, non-stop humor. It is a truly “boffo” hit, winning a record twelve Tony Awards (including best musical) and wowing capacity crowds night after night.
Max Bialystock, the onetime king of Broadway producers hungry to strike it rich, and Leo Bloom, an accountant with dreams of someday becoming a theatre producer, 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
