Repertory Philippines Brings The Record Breaking Broadway Comedy “The Producers”

Repertory Philippines brings the 12 Tony Award Winner Musical, The Producers.

A Broadway Musical based on the 1968 Mel Brooks film of the same title. The Producers is about two wily theatrical producers who cook up a scheme to get rich by overselling interests in a Broadway flop.

The humor of the show draws n ridiculous accents, homosexual stereotypes, and Nazis, along with many show business in-jokes. It is a satirical comedy that is deep enough for both insiders and outsiders of the theatre industry.

The Producers is a tribute to musicals, a love letter to Broadway presented with profane humor and musical numbers that audiences will enjoy.

To be directed by Jaime del Mundo, the Manila premier of THE  PRODUCERS will feature top caliber actors CARLO OROSA and ROBIE  ZIALCITA alternating as Max Bialystock, the beleaguered producer facing bankruptcy, who woos little old ladies into backing his shows.
