Director and choreographer Susan Stroman makes her screen directing debut with the new film version of The Producers, the screen adaptation of the Broadway hit starring Nathan Lane and Matthew Broderick.

Stroman also directed and choreographed the stage version of the musical, and won two Tony Awards for her work in that production.

She has won a total of five Tony awards over the course of her career. Her other Broadway credits include Contact, Oklahoma!, Crazy for You, and Showboat.

In addition, Stroman choreographed off-Broadway spectaculars such as Madison Square Garden's annual A Christmas Carol, along with productions for the New York City Opera and the New York City Ballet. She has won Emmy, Drama Desk, Outer Critics Circle and Astaire awards.
