In 2001, The Producers won 12 Tonys and lost 3. Don’t feel bad though—every loss was because someone else in the show won. Matthew Broderick lost to his co-star Nathan Lane, and Gary Beach beat out his cast-mates Roger Bart and Brad Oscar. That makes The Producers a rare show that sweeps every category in which it’s nominated. Of course, a production has a greater chance at success when it comes from such strong source material. Adapted from Mel Brooks’ classic 1967 film of the same name, The Producers remains one of the most celebrated shows in the history of musical theatre, praised for both its old-fashioned showbiz style and its razor-sharp satire. Not bad for a musical about Hitler.
Max Bialystock is tired of seeing every show he produces fail. So when nebbish accountant Leo Bloom mentions off-handedly that a person could make more money with a flop than with a hit, Max knows he’s the perfect person to come up with the worst production possible. Their adventure connects them with a neo-Nazi dramatist, a flamboyant director, and Swedish bombshell Ulla—all of whom take part in the flop of their dreams, Springtime for Hitler. But no good scheme goes unpunished, and before you can say “jackboot,” Bialystock & Bloom may have an unintentional hit on their hands. A romp in the rompiest sense of the word, The Producers packs every scene with visual gags—just wait for the granny tap-dance—and a robust, charming score that features the instant classics “Betrayed,” “When You’ve Got It (Flaunt It),” and “We Can Do It.”
