Based on Mel Brooks' 1967 film of the same name, The Producers sees down on his luck Broadway producer Max Bialystock set out to make millions by producing the worst show ever written. Brooks' zany comedic genius takes aim at every possible theatre cliché, and slays with thigh-slapping one-liners, sight gags, and gut-busting jokes. The golden-era, classic Broadway feel of this 2001 musical comedy propelled The Producers to legendary status, helping it to win more Tony Awards than any other show in Broadway history! Join us in "Little Old Lady Land," hear Ulla belt and laugh so hard you won't know what to do with yourself. "Everything you've heard is 100% true," says Clive Barnes of the New York Post. The Producers is "a cast-iron, super-duper mammoth old-time Broadway hit!" Please note: Explicit Language, Mature Themes, Sexuality.
This beloved Hans Christian Andersen fairy-tale was animated by the folks at Disney in 1989, and then brought to life on the Broadway stage in 2008.

This Disney classic includes the “Oscar-winning Under the Sea; the more lilting, shimmering calypso of Kiss the Girl, and especially Part of Your World, a teenage mermaid's lament that expresses youthful yearning for experience … simply and radiantly…” -Elyssa Gardner, USA Today
