Coral Springs Time for Hitler

With the Writers’ Guild strike still going strong, the concept of Mel Brook’s famous musical, The Producers seems more plausible than ever. In it, egotistical, Broadway producer Max Bailystock and his weasely accountant Leo Bloom concoct a scheme to steal a millions of dollars. How do they plan on grifting the financers of their latest turd, Springtime for Hitler? Well, by purposefully sabotaging the play with a low-rent cast and crew, then pocketing the difference. (If this doesn’t make you suspicious of the real motives behind strike-induced TV shitbombs like To Tell the Truth, then I’ve got some fantastic stocks I’d like to sell you.) Better you brush up on the story when the touring production of The Producers visits the Coral Springs Center for the Arts (2855 Coral Springs Dr., Coral Springs) this Saturday. Tickets start at $60.
