LARGO - Eight O’Clock Theatre’s production of “The Producers,” running March 1-17, kicks off the March entertainment schedule at Largo Cultural Center.
Mel Brooks' record-breaking, 12-time Tony Award-winner is all about the glitz, the glamour and the guffaws.
This laugh-out-loud musical comedy is the story of scheming producer Max Bialystock and his mousy accountant Leo Bloom. Bloom discovers that under the right circumstances they could make more money producing a Broadway flop than they could with a hit. The two set out to produce the worst Broadway musical of all time. But what will they do when their sure-to-offend musical becomes a surprise sensation? Audiences will find out with this great big, over-the-top, fun-filled musical comedy.
The production is a musical adapted by Mel Brooks and Thomas Meehan from Brooks' 1968 film of the same name, with lyrics written by Brooks and music composed by Brooks and arranged by Glen Kelly and Doug Besterman.
As this is a Brooks’ creation, audiences should be aware it is an equal opportunity offender, containing adult language and situations. “The Producers” may not be appropriate for children aged 12 or younger.
Performances are Thursday through Saturday, 8 p.m.; and Sunday, 2 p.m. Tickets are $25.50 for adults and $12.50 for ages 19 and younger plus applicable $3.50 service fee.
