CONFIRMED: Jason Manford stars in UK Tour of The Producers

It has been confirmed that comedian Jason Manford will star in a brand new UK Tour of The Producers. 

Based on Mel Brooks’ beloved Academy Award winning movie, The Producers is described as "a hilarious musical comedy". The show famously ran in the West End and on Broadway to tremendous acclaim, It won a record-breaking 12 Tony Awards and 3 Olivier Awards. The UK Tour begins performances at the Churchill Theatre in Bromley on Friday 6th March 2015.

Manford said; “I’m so thrilled to be starring in my favourite musical of all time. Mel Brooks is a genius and I’m so excited to be playing the iconic role he created. The show is a riot of laughs from start to finish.”

Mel Brooks said; “It’s brilliant to see ‘The Producers’ being brought to life again with this new production and I can’t wait to see what Jason Manford brings to the role of Leo.”

Impoverished by a string of flops, New York producer Max Bialystock recruits timid accountant Leo Bloom to help him pull off Broadway's greatest scam. Together they aim to produce the worst show ever and run away to Rio with millions, but they learn that Showbusiness can always find a way to kick you in the teeth.
