Opening night of ‘The Producers’
It’s the biggest show Uptown Players has
attempted — a mega-musical about the making of the worst musical of all time. The Mel Brooks show has a catchy, very gay score (drag anyone? a showstopper called “Keep It Gay”? Oh, yeah) and a dreamed-for cast including manic B.J. Cleveland as crazed producer Max Bialystock.

Kalita Humphreys Theater
3636 Turtle Creek Blvd.
Aug. 24–Sept. 15.
