Here’s something fun for mom and dad! The Producers is showing at the Sara Bell and Neil November Theatre at Virginia Rep Center.
Here’s what the critiques have to say:
- “Flashy and fun. VA Rep’s “The Producers” is sweet Broadway escapism at its most undiluted.” Richmond.com
- “Directed here by Patti D’Beck, a longtime veteran of Broadway musical theater, the cast of 22 throws themselves into Brooks’ shtick. And it’s enhanced by D’Beck’s choreography, mixing klezmer folk styles with an abundance of tap dancing that keeps the momentum strong.” Richmond Times-Dispatch
- “Fun, toe-tapping good show, that will leave you laughing and humming long after you’ve left the theater” examiner.com

Max Bailystock (Jason Marks as a washed-up Broadway producer) and Leo Bloom (Scott Wichmann as a neurotic accountant) team up to make millions… by producing the biggest flop in Broadway history!
They find the worst play ever written, obtain a large number of investors, hire a lead actor and director with absolutely no talent, and then sit back and wait for the bad reviews… but the plan doesn’t go quite as expected when the show becomes a smash hit!
Featuring 16 new songs by Mel Brooks, a slew of colorful characters (including a sexy Swedish secretary, singing Hitlers, and dancing grandmas,) The Producers entertains from the moment the curtain rises all the way through to the standing ovation! Don’t miss this spectacular show that has been credited with saving Broadway.
Get your tickets now – the show runs through January 13, 2013. This can also be a great Christmas gift for someone special! Take advantage of free College Nannies to take care of the kids and then make it a night out on the town.
