The Producers Milton KeynesBased on Mel Brooks’ beloved Academy Award winning movie, The Producers is a hilarious musical comedy that has taken Broadway and the West End by storm, winning a record-breaking 12 Tony Awards and 3 Olivier Awards; comes to Milton Keynes Theatre from Mon 30 Mar until Sat 4 Apr.

Impoverished by a string of flops, New York producer Max Bialystock recruits downtrodden accountant Leo Bloom to help him pull off Broadway's greatest scam. Together they aim to produce the worst show in history and run away to Rio with millions, but they learn that Show business can always find a way to kick you in the teeth. Featuring a riotous mix of eccentric characters and the all-time classic song Springtime For Hitler, The Producers is the funniest Broadway musical of all time.

The cast for this brand new Springtime tour of The Producers features one of the UK’s best loved comedians Jason Manford as timid accountant Leo Bloom. Broadway and West End star Cory English reprises his role as Max Bialystock, one he played to critical acclaim in London’s West End. Tiffany Graves joins the company as Ulla the object of Leo Bloom’s affections.

Phill Jupitus in the role of Franz Liebkind; the short fused, carrier pigeon keeping, former Nazi, brought on board by Max Bialystock and Leo Bloom to help them in their plot to put on the worst musical of all time.

Olivier Award winning actor David Bedella will play the flamboyant director Roger De Bris chosen by Max Bialystock in an attempt to ensure Springtime for Hitler is a flop. Renowned dancer, choreographer and television personality Louie Spence plays his equally flamboyant assistant Carmen Ghia.

Adam Spiegel said; “The Producers is the biggest, funniest Broadway musical of all time. It’s filled with fabulous costumes, glamorous dancing girls, hysterical show-tunes and an incredible live band. With a cast of the most celebrated, well-loved comedians in the UK today and the very best singers and dancers from London’s West End this production of Mel Brook’s record breaking, award winning comedy is guaranteed to be a hilarious night out!”

The cast for The Producers is completed by Abigail Brodie, Jaye Elster, Rebecca Fennelly, Olivia Fines, Andrew Gordon-Watkins, Fenton Gray, Aime Hodnett, Paul Hutton, Nia Jermin, Joel Montague, Genevieve Nicole, Tosh Wanogho-Maud, Jay Webb, Russell Wilcox and Aron Wild.
