Description

The Mel Brooks 1968 classic.  Not bad for a director’s debut!  Washed-up producer Max Bialystock (Zero Mostel) and accountant Leo Bloom (Gene Wilder) join forces for a sure-fire theatrical flop, while laughing all the way to the bank and a quick exit to Rio.  At least, that’s the game plan.  Oy gevalt!  Relive Springtime for Hitler and Brooks’ trademark hilarity in the Oscar-winning original movie behind the mega-hit Broadway play.

Introduced by Robert Brustein, founder and former director of the American Repertory Theater, Distinguished Scholar in Residence at Suffolk University
