The Producers

Book by Mel Brooks and Thomas Meehan
Music and lyrics by Mel Brooks
Based on the Brooks' movie comedy of the same name

Outrageous, hilarious, a teeny bit offensive, off the wall, and the winner of a record 12 Tony Awards are just a few things that The Producers is. Theatrical producers Max Bialystock and Leo Bloom sing and dance their way through the greatest show biz scam that there ever was! Definitely a musical for mature audiences. Footlite's production, directed by Rich Baker, will be only the second community theatre production in the Indianapolis area.
