Joe And Russ Become Jewish Producers

Published on March 04, 2007 with No Comments

British Comedians Joe Pasquale and Russ Abbot are the latest non-Jews set to take to the stage as Jewish characters in Mel Brooks’ hit musical The Producers.

The pair will star as Leo Bloom (Pasquale) and Max Bialystock (Abbot) in the show at Southampton’s ayflower Theatre, from September 25 – October 13.

The show recently ended a successful West End run which saw the likes of Nathan Lane, Lee Evans and John Gordon Sinclair play the roles of the hapless duo, whose attempt to score a huge Broadway flop with the musical Springtime For Hitler backfires in spectacular fashion.

It’s now on tour across the country, including Manchester, Sunderland, Birmingham and Bristol.
