Based on the Academy Award-winning 1968 film of the same name, The Producers, according to press notes, "chronicles the side-splitting adventures of washed-up Broadway producer Max Bialystock and his mild-mannered accountant Leo Bloom, as they scheme to get rich quick by producing the most notorious flop in the history of showbiz. It's a comic tour-de-force that spoofs the big, old-fashioned Broadway musical while paying tribute to it at the same time."
