About Our Shows
- "Rhetoric does not get you anywhere, because Hitler and Mussolini are just as good at rhetoric. But if you can bring these people down with comedy, they stand no chance." Mel Brooks
The Producers, The Feel-Good Make-You-Laugh Musical
No show before or since ever won as many Tony Awards - 12 of them! What was Mel Brooks' secret ingredient?
Laughter. The Producers makes us laugh at the bad guys, the good guys, at everybody actually.
This is the story of an unlikely pair of producers who determine that they can more money with a flop than with a hit. To make their scheme work, they find the most outrageous and insulting musical possible, a sure-to-close-on-opening-night catastrophe. They will then take their elderly investors' money and run away to Rio. Mel gives us a masterpiece of farce with infectious tunes, such as Keep It Gay, I Wanna Be A Producer, When You Got It, Flaunt It, and, following in the spirit of Charlie Chaplin, Springtime for Hitler.
Sound like bad taste? You bet, and it's the most inspired bad taste you'll ever see. Opens with a preview performance in Zichron Yaakov, Sep. 27th. Shows October through December in Jerusalem, the Center and around the country. Keep tuned!
