Bristol Riverside Theatre presents the popular musical “The Producers”

Bristol Riverside Theatre presents the ever-popular musical “The Producers” with book by Mel Brooks and Thomas Meehan and music and lyrics by Mel Brooks on March 6-April 1.  The multiple Tony-award winning musical is directed by Keith Baker, music directed by Douglass Lutz, with choreography by Stephen Casey and starring Danny Rutigliano and Michael Doherty and featuring Nicole Benoit, Fred Inkley, Morgan W. Reynolds, Jo Twiss, and Danny Vaccaro.  The ensemble features Luke Bradt, Kathryn Brunner, Nicole Calabrese, Zachary J. Chiero, John D. DiFerdinando, Becca Goebel, Louis Jannuzzi III, Lauren Krigel, Patrick Ludt, Niklaus Patrick Miller, James E. Ofalt, Dominick Sannelli, Erika Wasko, and Keith Watford.
“The Producers” opened on Broadway to historic, unanimous rave reviews, earning a record-breaking twelve Tony Awards. This laugh-out-loud musical is the story of scheming producer Max Bialystock and his mousy accountant Leo Bloom. They discover that under the right circumstances they could make more money producing a flop than a hit, never anticipating that their sure-to-offend musical will become a surprise sensation. This side-splitting tour-de-force spoofs grand, old-fashioned Broadway musicals while paying tribute to them all at the same time.
Previews begin Tuesday, March 6 with opening night on Thursday, March 8.  Performances run Wednesday through Sunday with a single Tuesday preview until April 1.  Tickets start at $45, with discounts for students, groups and military personnel.  Tickets are available by visiting brtstage.org or calling the BRT Box Office at 215-785-0100.  Bristol Riverside Theatre is located at 120 Radcliffe Street in Bristol, PA.
