The Producers


It may be October in Short Hills, New Jersey, but it’s Springtime for Hitler at the Papermill Playhouse. This production of “The Producers” brings back the full Lane-Broderick-Stroman lalapalooza, replete with the same choreography, sets, and costumes as the Broadway blockbuster.

Michael Kostroff succeeds Zero Mostel and Nathan Lane as the irrepressible Max Bialystock, serial seducer of little old ladies and perpetual perpetrator of flops. David Josefsberg succeeds Gene Wilder and Matthew Broderick as anxious accountant Leo Bloom. Ashley Spenser struts her pseudo-Swedish stuff as Ulla.

“The Producers” definitely deserves regular revival, and this production does the comic classic full justice.
