“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.
