Closing out the 2020/2021 season is a musical from EGOT winner and comedy icon Mel Brooks. Down on his luck producer Max Bialystock and his hapless accountant, Leo Bloom, embark on a seemingly impossible quest: to find the worst possible script, produce the biggest flop on Broadway, and get millions of dollars from investors in order to do it! With a ragtag creative team, including a playwright/bird aficionado, a vivacious Swedish woman, and a flamboyant director and his life partner, will Bialystock and Bloom have a flop...or will it actually turn out to be a hit? With iconic songs from a comedy legend, and with a record breaking 12 Tony Awards, this show is sure to make you laugh until your sides ache!
