**** Highly Recommended **** There is absolutely no doubt in my mind that the Paramount Theatre has a huge hit with “The Producers”, the outrageously funny musical based on Mel Brooks’ 1968 Academy Award winning black and white cult classic film. An outrageous plot, fast-paced dialogue, clever lyrics, slapstick comedy, pratfalls and sight gags, guarantee you’ll love this show. No matter how many times I’ve seen “The Producers”, it always makes me laugh. It’s totally worth the drive to Aurora. 4 BIG Spotlights.
“The Producers” runs through March 17th at the Paramount Theatre, 23 E. Galena Blvd., Aurora. Although valet parking is available, there is plenty of free street/lot parking also. Running time is about 2 hours, 45 minutes, with an intermission. Performances are Wednesdays at 1:30 and 7:00 pm; Thursdays at 7:00 pm; Fridays at 8:00 pm; Saturdays at 3:00 and 8:00 pm; and Sundays at 1:00 and 5:30 pm. Tickets range from $36-$69.
