I Wanna Be A Producer

Album: The Producers soundtrack (2001)

Songfacts®:

  • Like the rest of the songs in the 2005 film and musical The Producers, "I Wanna Be A Producer" was written by Mel Brooks.

    According to the programme for the 2005 Theatre Royal Drury Lane production, it takes place in the offices of Whitehall & Marks where it is performed by Leo and the accountants. Leo Bloom is theatrical producer Max Bialystock's accountant, and along with him the lead character in the show.
