The Broadway version of The Producers has come to an end after more than 2,500 performances at the St James Theatre in New York.
The production has played across the world and won twelve Tony awards and tells the story of two crooked producers who set up a flop Broadway show about Adolf Hitler.
After the final matinee show yesterday, Mel Brooks – who wrote the music and lyrics – took to the stage to address the audience.
“We have had six years of frolic and joy, and you have been such a good audience to give us such a rich, final performance,” he said.
The St James theatre is now expected to play host to Brooks’ next show, a musical version of his 1974 film Young Frankenstein.
