Paper Mill Playhouse starts its season next week with “The Producers” (Sept. 28, opening night Oct. 2). If you missed the original that ran for 2,502 Broadway performances, got a record 12 Tony Awards nominations, and became a 2005 film … don’t let that stop you seeing it again at this theater that keeps sending shows to Broadway. (Look for “A Bronx Tale” at the Longacre Theatre in November.)
“It’s a thrill to revisit this hilarious show as a director, having played the part of Leo on tour and on Broadway,” commented director Don Stephenson. “To build ‘The Producers’ at Paper Mill Playhouse is ideal. The facilities and the support that artists receive make for an enjoyable and seamless creative process.”
