    QUARANTINE BONUS: BIALYSTOCK & BLOOM MEET!

    QUARANTINE BONUS: BIALYSTOCK & BLOOM MEET!

    In this audio reenactment of the hilarious scene from the original film of "The Producers", by Mel Brooks, Max Bialystock, a down-and-out theatrical producer, meets Leo Bloom, a young accountant, sent to do his books. Just a few moments before this scene begins, Leo had walked into Bialy's office, and witnessed the older man in a somewhat compromising position with a much older lady. In the course of this later encounter, Bialy and Leo spar verbally over business and ethics, and whether the two have ever met. Featuring Pete Lutz as Bialystock and Jordan Bruster as Bloom, recorded (over Skype) specially for the entertainment of COVID-19 shut-ins. Enjoy!

Pete Lutz, Johnny Logan was a JOCKEY!!

The frankfurters are horse meat. “Pickle in the middle and the mustard on top, or the mustard in the middle and Johnny Logan on top.” Jockeys are “up” on a horse!! This is an awesome show and can’t wait to hear more!!

DavidFeldmann ,

A fun series!

I’m a big fan of radio dramas and it’s good to see new productions that carry on the tradition of audio plays into the 21st century. Very worthwhile!

Weebo Mantoukas ,

A truly solid anthology show

Pulp-Pourri Theatre has been around for a little while now and it's fantastic. As with most anthology shows, you never quite know what you're going to get, but you will always be pleasantly surprised. The most recent Poe stuff is great!
