Best Review Ever.
It is, to put it simply, the real thing: a big Broadway book musical that is so ecstatically drunk on its powers to entertain that it leaves you delirious...
I don't usually post links to the New York Times, but this is a fabulous review of Mel Brook's new Broadway play, The Producers. (The New York Times site is free, but you need to join.)

You can also read a great review at MSNBC.
THIS BIG WHOOPEE cushion of a musical simultaneously restores its primary author, Mel Brooks — the granddaddy of grossout humor, after all — to his rightful place of honor in showbiz, and gives Broadway the kind of headline-making megahit it hasn’t seen since a certain Disney feline came to town.
