Product Details

If you've ever wanted to sit in on a recording session for a Broadway cast album--one that just happens to be one of the most successful in recent history-- you're in for a treat. Recording "The Producers": A Musical Romp with Mel Brooks follows creator Brooks, stars Nathan Lane and Matthew Broderick, and the rest of the company as they create the cast recording for the musical that won a record 12 Tony Awards and became the hottest ticket on Broadway in the spring of 2001. Brooks provides plot background and historical anecdotes between the 14 musical numbers that are excerpted, including "The King of Broadway," "I Wanna Be a Producer," "When You Got It, Flaunt It," and the inevitable "Springtime for Hitler." Watching this 85-minute documentary is no substitute for seeing the live show (or the 1968 film that inspired it), but it's an enlightening and entertaining companion to the CD.
