WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
A musical revue of great songs, many of them classics from the Great American Songbook. Each song was a bright spot in a Broadway musical that flopped. For every Les Mis, My Fair Lady and Annie, there's at least one Pipe Dream, Anyone Can Whistle, or The Baker's Wife, proving that even Rodgers and Hammerstein, Stephen Sondheim and Stephen Schwartz can write a flop show. For every blockbuster smash like Book of Mormon or Phantom, there's an epic flop counterpart, such as Spider Man, that flop by which all others are measured, Carrie. Starting with a recreation of the notorious publicity stunt pulled by producer David Merrick on the opening eve of his flop Subways Are For Sleeping, this one-of-a-kind musical revue revives some of Broadway's greatest songs that got away, such as "Who Can I Turn To?", "What Did I Have?" and "One Night in Bangkok."
