In the 1968 comedy "The Producers," would-be Broadway moguls Bialystock and Bloom attempt to get rich by overselling shares in "Springtime For Hitler," a musical so singularly awful that the pair believed there could be no chance of its success, which would force them to pay the investors back the impossible percentages each was promised.
They just didn't try hard enough.
Our latest abomination is a thespian horror to surpass even a singing, dancing Third Reich. Much of the cast requested not only anonymity, but enrollment in the Witness Protection Program. Many thanks to Felice, Ava, Chris and Dirk for their stellar performances.
If you'd like longer versions of the songs, they are available as a medley on iTunes, which you can go there and buy. I don't know why you would, but you could. However, for FuMP subscribers the medley will also be included on the FuMP CD as a bonus track, time permitting. I realize this is sort of along the lines of the old joke about "Second Prize is TWO weeks in Detroit," but there you have it. And to complete the multimedia experience, we have Dino-Mike hard at work on a video which we hope to have up in a few weeks. Muchas gracias and happy holidays!
