'The Producers' to play three days at the Lied

"The Producers," a Mel Brooks musical, will make its Lincoln premiere at the Lied Center for Performing Arts, Feb. 9-11. Performances are 7:30 p.m. Feb. 9; 2 and 7:30 p.m.. Feb. 10; and 1 p.m. and 6:30 p.m. Feb. 11.

"The Producers" features the story of Max Bialystock, a down-on-his-luck theatrical producer, and Leo Bloom, a mousy accountant. Together they hatch the ultimate scam - raise more money than needed for a sure-fire Broadway flop and pocket the difference. That "sure-fire" fiasco turns out to be "Springtime for Hitler."

"The Producers" dominated the 2001 Tony Awards with nine awards, the most in Broadway history.

A pre-performance talk will be offered 30 minutes prior to curtain of each performance in the Lied Center's Steinhart Room. Seating is limited.

Tickets are $45, $40 and $35. UNL students with a valid NCard and youth 18 and younger may purchase tickets for half price. Ticket are available online at or at 472-4747.
