The show centres around a struggling impresario Max Bialystock who discovers he can make more money from a flop than a hit. With the help of timid accountant Leo Bloom , Bialystock sets about staging the worst play he can find. The pair then hire the worst director in Manhattan who never goes anywhere without his partner Carmen Ghia. All that’s left is to raise the money, which Max does by seducing an army of old ladies.
