The final pose of The Producers' Act One Finale. This is the moment when the specially selected flop, Springtime for Hitler, starts to come together. Bialystock and Bloom have their playwright - unregenerate Nazi and pigeon aficionado, Franz Liebkind (Ron Orbach); their director - the effete Roger DeBries (Gary Beach) and his even-more-effeminate manservant, Carmen Gia (Roger Bart); and their secretary/receptionist with Broadway dreams of her own, the alluring Ulla (Cady Huffman). Finally, the conmen producers have managed to fleece all of "Old Ladyland" and they have their money. Nothing can stop them - or so they think.
The Producers, based on the classic Mel Brooks comedy and featuring all new songs from Brooks, will open April 19 at the St. James Theatre. Chicago sees the new tuner first with a run at the Cadillac Palace Theatre Feb. 1-25 before Broadway previews begin March 22.
