The Producers

The Maltz Jupiter Theatre has just the solution for you this season with the hit Broadway blockbuster The Producers, set to take the Theatre by storm January 10 through 29. Winner of 12 Tony Awards®, The Producers combines Mel Brooks’ humor with the magic of Broadway to create an outrageously funny adventure. The smash hit musical follows the story of a down-on-his-luck producer and his accountant who decide to take a chance on Broadway with a brand-new show. Together they scheme to produce a flop in order to keep the backers’ money and become rich.

Beloved for its take-no-prisoners style, this musical phenomenon explodes with witty antics and over-the-top shenanigans that will keep audiences laughing from beginning to end! “The Producers is a comic tour-de-force and a hilarious audience favorite,” said Andrew Kato, the Theatre’s producing artistic director and chief executive. “We’d like to encourage patrons to purchase their tickets early before this hit musical is completely sold out.”

Adapted by Mel Brooks and Thomas Meehan from Brooks’ 1968 film of the same name, The Producers features lyrics by Brooks and music composed by Brooks and arranged by Glen Kelly and Doug Besterman. The musical’s original Broadway production opened in 2001 starring Nathan Lane and Matthew Broderick and ran for 2,502 performances, winning a record-breaking number of Tony Awards® and earning rave reviews. “Delicious,” “altogether blissful” and “tirelessly agile!” raved the New York Times.

Over the past 25 years, The Producers is one of only a handful of shows (including Rent, Angels in America, The Book of Mormon and Hamilton) that have ranked as runaway smash hits. The Producers initially broke the record for the largest single day box-office ticket sales in theatre history with more than $3 million in single day ticket sales, then later broke its own record by taking in over $3.5 million. Its success led to a hit London production, national tours, many productions worldwide and a 2005 film version.

The show will star two Broadway veterans in its title roles: Lenny Wolpe as the down-on-his-luck producer Max (whose Broadway credits include Bullets Over Broadway, Wicked, The Drowsy Chaperone and The Sound of Music) and Mark Price as his accountant Leo (whose Broadway credits include Mary Poppins, Wonderful Town, All Shook Up and Mamma Mia!).

The Producers is sponsored by Jane Napier and William W. Napier; tickets start at $56.The not-for-profit Maltz Jupiter Theatre has become one of Florida’s preeminent professional theatres, committed to production and education through its collaborations with local and national artists.
