THE PRODUCERS– at the Mercury Theater- Mercury Theater, Chicago, 3745 N Southport Ave
773 325-1700

It is truly a hit, winning a record twelve Tony Awards and wowing capacity crowds night after night. The plot is simple: a down-on-his-luck Broadway producer and his mild-mannered accountant come up with a scheme to produce the most notorious flop in history thereby bilking their backers (all “little old ladies”) out of millions of dollars. Only one thing goes awry: the show is a smash hit! At the core of the insanely funny adventure is a poignant emotional journey of two very different men who become friends. THE PRODUCERS skewer Broadway traditions and takes no prisoners as it proudly proclaims itself an “equal opportunity offender!”

Q-tips say: LOVED IT! Well done, funny, great acting, choreography, set designs, music, costumes and flows nicely. Mrs. Q says: The Mercury Theater is an old movie theater but the seats are a bit better than some others. The play is a 4 star winner – see it, you won’t be disappointed. Yes, it is an “equal opportunity offender.”
