‘The Producers’ coming to Reno
August 17, 2004
“The Producers,” the new Mel Brooks musical, will make its Nevada premiere at the Pioneer Center for the Performing Arts in Reno. The one-week engagement will begin Sept. 28 and run through Oct. 3.
Admission is priced from $45 to $95. Tickets are available for purchase on-line at pioneercenter.com or by phone at (775) 686-6600 or 1-877-639l-3728. Prices are subject to service charges.
Based on Mel Brook’s Academy Award-winning 1968 film, “The Producers” is the story of down-on-his-luck theatrical producer Max Bialystock and Leo Bloom, a mousy accountant. Together, they hatch the ultimate scam: raise more money than needed for a sure-fire Broadway flop and pocket the difference. Their “sure-fire” theatrical fiasco is none other than the musical, “Springtime for Hitler.”
“The Producers” has a Tony Award-winning book by Mel Brooks and Thomas Meehan, Tony Award-winning music and lyrics by Mel Brooks, is directed and choreographed by five-time Tony Award winner Susan Stroman and stars Bob Amaral as Max Bialystock and Andy Taylor as Leo Bloom.
