This is a taping session done by the cast of the musical The Producers. Watch how much they enjoy themselves singing in a studio! Oh how I would love to be involved in something like that… imagining that I can sing like that of course! I find Gary Beach (the main solo for this song) absolutely delightful here. I can see why he won the Tony in 2001 for this role!
You would have to know the story of The Producers to fully appreciate this song. In a nutshell, a producer and his accountant is trying to persuade the worst director in town and his team to direct what they hope is a sure-fire flop titled ‘Springtime for Hitler’. They finally accept after conceiving a way to keep the story light and ‘gay’.
