"I wanna be a Producer..." That's what everyone will be singing after experiencing the EPAC Repertory Company's production of Mel Brooks' 12-time Tony Award winning hit The Producers. The Producers runs November 6-8, and 13-15 at the EPAC Theater located at 102 Washington Avenue, in Endicott. Friday and Saturday performances are at 8:00 PM and Sunday performances are at 3:00 PM.
Based on the hit 1968 film of the same name, this Mel Brooks masterpiece chronicles the hilarious adventures of washed-up Broadway producer Max Bialystock and his mild-mannered accountant Leo Bloom, as they scheme to get rich quick by producing the most notorious flop in the history of showbiz. What they don't know is that after all their hard work, the musical ends up being a smash hit! It's a comic tour-de-force that spoofs the big, old-fashioned Broadway musical while paying tribute to it at the same time. The classic score contains such gems as "I Wanna Be A Producer," "When You Got It, Flaunt It," "Springtime for Hitler," and "Prisoners of Love." With a book by Mel Brooks and Thomas Meehan and music and lyrics by Mel Brooks, The Producers will have audiences laughing out loud.
The Producers unites the audience with its jokes, sight gags and over-the-top musical numbers. "Leave it to Mel Brooks to create an outrageous musical comedy featuring tap dancing old ladies, a kick line of German soldiers, and leggy show girls- all on one stage!" says director Patrick Foti.
When it comes to outrageous comedy, Mel Brooks is a self proclaimed equal opportunity offender. This musical is not recommended for audience members who are easily offended by bawdy comedy based on race, religion and sexuality.
