'Producers' Tour, Scheduled For Hancher, Is Postponed

The touring production of "The Producers," scheduled for the 2005-06 season in the University of Iowa Hancher Auditorium, has been postponed for a year, requiring the cancellation of the Hancher dates.

The Hancher box office will communicate with those who have already purchased "Producers" tickets, to arrange refunds.

Mel Brooks and Susan Stroman, who were to have overseen the redesign of the production for half-week runs, have been consumed by their involvement with the film of "The Producers" now in production. Hancher Artistic Director Judith Hurtig says that when the production is ready to tour, she will make every effort to re-book the show for Hancher.
