WOODLAWN THEATRE PRESENTS HIT MUSICAL COMEDY ‘THE PRODUCERS’
San Antonio, TX (March 11, 2013) – Winner of 12 Tony Awards (the most in Broadway history), including Best Musical, ‘The Producers’ is the hysterical, laugh-out-loud comedy by Mel Brooks and Thomas Meehan.
Based on the hit 1968 film of the same name, this Mel Brooks masterpiece chronicles the hilarious 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. What they don't know is that after all their hard work, the musical ends up being a smash hit! It's a comic tour-de-force that spoofs the big, old-fashioned Broadway musical while paying tribute to it at the same time. The classic score contains such gems as "I Wanna Be A Producer," "When You Got It, Flaunt It," "Springtime for Hitler," and "Prisoners of Love." With a book by Mel Brooks and Thomas Meehan and music and lyrics by Mel Brooks, THE PRODUCERS will have audiences laughing out loud.
San Antonio legend Vivienne Elborne directs this uproarious comedy starring Greg Hinojosa (Woodlawn’s Artistic Director) as down-and-out producer Max Bialystock, Walter Songer as Max's timid accountant Leo Bloom and Paige Blend as Ulla, the Swedish bombshell that Bialystock and Bloom hire as their receptionist. Most recently, Hinojosa appeared in Neil Simon’s romantic comedy ‘Chapter 2’ produced in Woodlawn Theatre’s Black Box and directed by Mrs. Elborne. The ‘Bloom’ to Hinojosa’s ‘Bialystock’, Walter Songer returns to the Woodlawn stage after being featured as Malcolm McGregor in ‘The Full Monty’. And Paige Blend was most recently seen in The Playhouse’s world premiere of ‘Roads Courageous’.
The show will run April 5 – May 5, with performances Friday & Saturday evenings at 7:30pm, and Sunday matinees at 3pm. Tickets can be purchased online at www.WoodlawnTheatre.com, or by calling our box office at 210-267-8388.
