    Synopsis: 

    Mel Brooks' 1968 cult film has finally made it to Broadway! The Producers follows two Broadway producers as they execute a most unique plan: to sell 25,000 percent of a new show, have it fail miserably, and quietly collect the money after the show closes. To ensure their success, they hire the worst of the worst to mount Springtime for Hitler, a "gay romp with Adolph and Eva at Berchtesgaden." The perfect scheme ends in disaster as Springtime for Hitler becomes the last thing anyone expected it to be: a hit! The production is directed and choreographed by Susan Stroman.

    A Scam That'll Knock 'Em Dead

    Ben Brantley

    April 20, 2001: HOW do you single out highlights in a bonfire?
