Mel Brooks' The Producers coming to the Strand

 


Mel Brooks' first movie and his first collaboration with Gene Wilder tells the story of 2 men who realize that there are times when a failure could make them a fortune. Now, if they can only do nothing right...


Springtime for Hitler???


So, this crazy hilarious movie was eventually made into a Broadway hit and remade, but the original did everything right...


“Some of the best lunatic humor since the Marx Brothers invaded the opera.”

—Newsweek


“Pure lunacy… uproariously funny!”

—Time


I'm in pain! And I'm wet! And I'm still hysterical!


I picked the wrong play, the wrong director, the wrong cast. Where did I go right?


Don't be stupid, be a smarty. Come and join the Nazi party.


Will the dancing Hitlers please wait in the wings? We are only seeing singing Hitlers.


This is wine, women, and song... and women.


Shut up, I'm having a rhetorical conversation.


Not many people know it, but the Fuhrer was a terrific dancer.


You shut up! You are the audience! I am the author! I OUTRANK you!


Der F├╝hrer does not say, "Achtung, baby."


I'm not a "madam"! I'm a "concierge"!
