The Producers 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. Mel Brooks’ original film won an Oscar for Best Writing, Story, and Screenplay in 1969. Gene Wilder was nominated for an Oscar for Best Supporting Actor.
The musical debuted on Broadway in 2001. After the opening, The Producers broke the record for the largest single day box-office ticket sales in theatre history, taking in more than $3 million. The loss of the original stars had a detrimental effect on the success of the production, prompting the return of Lane and Broderick for a limited run from December 2003 to April 2004. The show's sales then broke its own record with over $3.5 million in single day ticket sales.
At the 2001 Tony Awards, The Producers won 12 out of 15 nominations setting the record for the most wins in history and one of the only musicals to win in every category in which it was nominated. This nominations record was beaten only in 2016 when Hamilton secured 16 nominations. However The Producers still holds the record for most Tony wins beating Hamilton which won 11 awards.
Max Bialystock, the onetime producing tycoon of Broadway desperately wants to make his fortune, together with Leo Bloom, an innocent but ambitious accountant, who has his own visions of becoming a successful Broadway producer. Together they discover that their fortunes may lie in producing a flop rather than a hit and begin the hunt for the worst show, worst director, and worst actors of all time. Unfortunately for them, their dismal new production, Springtime for Hitler, ends up being a box office smash hit sensation throwing their lives and all their fool proof plans into disarray.
