The Producers

by Mel Brooks and Thomas Meehan

Fridays and Saturdays at 8pm, Sundays at 3pm Sept. 8 - Sept. 24 TICKETS
Winner of multiple Tony Awards, including Best Musical. Based on the 1968 film, Mel Brooks’s musical The Producers is a laugh-out-loud, outrageous, crowd-pleasing farce that has been a smash hit since its 2001 debut. Fading Broadway producer Max Bialystock is desperate to get to the top of his profession again, and he finds an unlikely ally in mousy accountant Leo Bloom, who hypothesizes that one could make far more money with a flop of a show than with a hit. Together, the two set out to produce the worst musical ever to hit Broadway, with the worst script, the worst director, and the worst cast they can find; the catch is that they will raise two million dollars to finance the show, and they plan to take the money and head to Rio when the show inevitably closes after just one performance. Too bad for Bialystock & Bloom that, against all odds, the show is a total hit! With dozens of big and bit parts alike, no shortage of showstopping musical numbers, and Brooks’ signature humor keeping audiences in stitches, The Producers is definitely far from a flop.

by David Mamet

Fridays and Saturdays at 8pm April 27 - May 12 TICKETS
Donny, the owner of a small-time pawnshop, and Bobby, his drug-addicted sidekick and gofer, are planning a burglary. Bobby has already messed up the stake-out, and Donny tries to teach him about good business, but Donny loves Bobby and wants to take care of him, so he's not too angry. When another friend, Teach, comes in and hears them talking about the burglary, he wants in, but he wants Bobby out. This sets off a conflagration of mistrust among the three men, which may or may not involve double-dealing and lies. Their friendships are tested against the background of doing business. American Buffalo is Mamet's first major play and still one of his most produced.
