Can a flop make more money than a hit?

“The Producers,” the Mel Brooks film that became a hit Broadway show, comes to Gainesville this month in a Gainesville Theatre Alliance production.

The play centers on struggling Broadway producer Max Bialystock and his neurotic accountant Leo Bloom, who hatch a plan to put on the worst show in Broadway history in the hopes of making a fortune. Yet their musical, “Springtime for Hitler,” complete with dancing Nazis, turns out to be the smash of the season.

GTA’s own Bialystock and Bloom will present “the worst show in town” from Nov. 6-17 at Brenau University’s Hosch Theatre. A preview performance is set for Nov. 5, with an audio-described matinee for the visually impaired Nov. 17.

Shows begin at 7:30 p.m., with 2:30 p.m. matinees on Nov. 11 and 17.

The show is rated PG-15 for suggestive storylines.

Gainesville Theatre Alliance is a collaboration between Brenau University, Gainesville State College, theatre professionals and the northeast Georgia community.

Attendees can meet the cast at a free, catered opening night reception following the Nov. 6 performance.

Tickets are $20-$24 for adults, $18-$20 for seniors and $14-$16 for students depending on seat location. Patrons can select their own seats online at or by calling 678-717-3624.
