The Producers on Tour

The girls and I saw The Producers last night at the Center for the Arts. Fond of musicals, we four hummed to the tunes while the real actors were doing their stuff and left the theatre singing merrily to the tunes of the musical as we headed to our car. The actors who played Carmen Ghia and Roger de Bris did a marvelous job portraying the frivolous and flamboyant duo.

Jason Simon & Austin Owen did amazing justice to the part of Max Bialystock and Leo Bloom. As Bialystock (Simon) pointed out during the performance while portraying an audience, "He's (Bialystock) good, he's no Nathan but he's good" referring to the amazing Nathan Lane in the original Broadway production as well as movie of The Producers. As for Owen who played Leo Bloom, he delivered the same charm as Matthew Broderick had.
