The Producers, by Mel Brooks
That Fabulous Show!
Thursday, June 18, 2009
5.0
I love Musicals and The Producers is one of my favorites. The Rosewater Theatre has outdone themselves with this gem. I was there last Saturday and it was sold out!

Brandon Wilkinson is a wonderful Max and very much reminds you of Nathan Lane. Allen Cox as Leo Bloom exceeded my expectations. His expressions are priceless throughout the whole show and it is particularly appealing in the intimate setting of their theatre in the round. Who says Ulla has to be a towering blonde. I could not imagine anyone else playing the part. Gretchen Rebecca Gordon is Ulla bundled up into a dynomite package. One of the highlights is "That Face" Simply fabulous. I thoroughly enjoyed Allan Dodson and Springtime for Hitler was the best. Roger DeBris's staff were wonderful. The woman playing Shirley Moscowitz was hysterical and I believe she also played a number of other characters including Hold Me Touch Me. Rosewater has found a real diamond in her. I absolutely loved Carmen Ghia and hope to see the fellow playing him in more productions. Peter Perozzi is wonderful as Franz Liebkind. You just never know what to expect when he walks on the stage and that really is what makes his performance so marvelous. The dancers were awesome and it is nice to see good quality tap dancing in a show.

Sets were great and esp. enjoyed the office changing from an office in the round to an all white set in Act II. It was different and very clever to move from one theatre to another.

All in all this is a wonderful production and all involved should be commended. A must see. I understand it runs until June 27 so there are not too many more performances! Would I see it again? You betcha. Just as good as their rendition of Chicago which I would go see again too. Rosewater needs to do more musicals because they are certainly in their element when it comes to that venue
