Even before it's opening night the buzz around town was that "The Producers" is the newest must see show at the Pantages. Estimated to have to have sold $24 million in advanced ticket sales this figure does not include any group sales. "The Producers" also has the honor of being the most awarded show in Broadway History with a record of 12 Tony Awards and 11 Drama Desk Awards.
Electrical Jason Alexander stars as slimy producer Max Bialystock along side the hilarious slapstick humor of Martin Short as the mousy accountant Leo Bloom. Angie Schworer heats up the stage as the Swedish Bombshell Ulla. They are joined by a superb cast of zany actors, directors and Nazis. If you like to laugh and enjoy irreverent humor, lots of jokes, fabulous actors singers and dancers, campy costumes and (did I mention laughing?); then be sure not to miss "The Producers".
