RUN to see The Producers!

I saw the Saint John Theatre Company production of The Producers last night.

WOW.  That about covers it.  And the K100 ad wasn’t kidding either, “it’s so funny you’ll wet your pants!”  I was doubled over (which is hard when you have a 6 month fetus in your belly) and tearing up from the laughter. 

I anticipated the fabulous characters knowing many of the people in the show, but I was surprised at the calibre of performances I saw last night…  and it was just the dress rehearsal!

From the opening notes of “Opening Night” I was hooked.  The costumes were wonderful, the company numbers ridiculously superb and the sets were impressive.  Not surprisingly, Stephen Tobias as Max Bialystock was awesome!  Jeff Smith (who blew me away in Tuesdays with Morrie) was a fantastic choice for Leo Bloom…  his hysterics had me in stitches!  Ulla (Dayna Cameron-Van Doleweerd) was delightfully cheeky and boy could she shimmy!  My favorite by far: Scott Thomas as gay director Roger Du Buis.  His first appearance in drag was enough to make the show worth every penny, but when he came out in the “Springtime for Hitler” (show within the show) number and pranced around the stage in his liederhosen I thought I would die laughing!  And to top it all off, the supporting cast was enchanting and the musical numbers fantastic.

I wish many a broken leg to the cast and crew for the rest of the run, I loved every minute of it!

If you don’t have tickets, you are missing out and should get your ass to the Imperial Theatre tonight through Saturday at 8pm (matinée on Saturday at 2pm).
