Amazing news to theatre enthusiasts! The multi-award-winning Mel Brooks’ musical comedy hit “The Producers” is back in Malaysia again!
Set in 1959 New York, this 12 Tony awards Broadway smash hit explores the witty adventure of two theatrical producers who wanted to get rich by fraudulently overselling interests in a Broadway musical designed to fail. However, things took a turn when the show became a surprise hit!

Peter Ong, one of the most accomplished performing artistes in Malaysia and across the region, expressed his excitement of returning to the stage as the ill-repute producer Max Bialystock. “If you enjoy music and comedy, this is one production you don’t want to miss! Come and enjoy an evening at the theatre for a laugh-out-loud time,” he said.
This musical is sponsored by Sunway University, as part of the University’s efforts to support local creative industry. Professor Sibrandes Poppema, President of Sunway University said, “Sunway University with its Most Happening Campus and steadily growing School of Arts appreciates the value of arts and music to society and is happy to support and collaborate with Pan Production on the Mel Brooks musical comedy “The Producers”.”
