Carmen Ghia is a fictional character from the 1968 Mel Brooks comedy The Producers played by Andreas Voutsinas, its 2001 Broadway show The Producers by Roger Bart, and the 2005 musical film The Producers also by Roger Bart. The name evokes the Volkswagen automobile, the Karmann Ghia.
Some critics have speculated that Brooks included the overtly gay characters of Roger De Bris and his male "secretary" Carmen Ghia so that audiences would not perceive an unintended homosexual subtext in the friendship between Max Bialystock and Leo Bloom.
