The Producers

Alan Ruck

We’ve been in New York for more than three months and have finally done what many would do on their first night in this ‘ol town… Ventured out to see a Broadway show! In this case it was the Producers, a show that has won more Tony Awards than any musical in history and is showing at the St James theatre (built in 1927) on West 44th street.

The evening was surprising, though that’s to be expected when you go to a show that you don’t know anything about! The strangest for me was finding that two stars of the TV show Spin City played the singing, dancing male leads! You remember Paul (the bumbling idiot) and Stewart (the heartless office meanie)? Paul’s understudy played the role of Max Bialystock but Stewart was there and I was really impressed with his comic performance. I’ll admit that we were all a little taken aback at the language used in places though.

Kristy’s rating: 6 squirrels. A great night out but far from being my favourite show of all time.

Oh, and I hear The Producers is screening in Brisbane at the moment too: that’s so cool!

    Jo and myself actually just saw The Producers in Brisbane last night! It was great, extremely politically incorrect but very funny.
