There’s something ironic about turning a movie satire about Broadway into an actual Broadway play. But somehow, Nathan Lane and Matthew Broderick managed to pull it off. Mel Brooks’ 1968 comedy The Producers turned out to be perfectly suited onstage. The touring production comes to Akron this weekend without the big-name stars but with all the laughs intact. The musical revolves around a shifty theater producer and his mousy accountant, who hatch a plan to bilk investors out of their cash by staging the worst play ever. But with songs like “Springtime for Hitler,” it turns out to be a campy hit.
