The Producers

May 19, 2005 - reviews

Besides being very funny, The Producers musical (now playing at the Fabulous Fox theater in St. Louis) is visually stunning thanks to some very innovative sets and lighting — far more sophisticated than anything one would expect from the man who also brought you Robin Hood: Men in Tights. The costumes are fabulous too, flaunted by an enormous cast adept at the quick-change. The story is vintage Mel Brooks, showcasing his life-long preoccupation with all things Nazi (Springtime for Hitler is comedy gold), jewish, big-breasted and homosexual. Go see this show if you have the chance!
