Review: The Tony-winning show comes to the Syracuse OnCenter, where the magic of the original Broadway show shines through despite script changes.

As musical theater fans would likely tell you, The Producers is one of the funniest musicals of the 21st century. Written by Mel Brooks, the musical was adapted from his 1968 film into a 2001 Broadway musical. Starring Nathan Lane as Max Bialystock and Matthew Broderick as Leo Bloom, the musical won three Olivier awards and a record-breaking twelve Tony awards.
