Mel Brooks is a filmmaker that made a name for himself with his farces and comic parodies, including Blazing Saddles and Young Frankenstein. His directorial debut came in 1968 with The Producers, a beloved film about a scheme gone awry that went 33 years before being adapted into a smash Broadway musical. Although the musical was itself made into a film in 2005, there is nothing like seeing a musical in the proper sphere, specifically that of live theater. The Producers is currently running at the Mercury Theater with a production that has earned rave reviews. Be sure to catch the show before it closes at the end of the month. Tickets are available from $30 to $65.
