In your opinion what is the worst show of 2012 that you saw? I'll start. Scandalous. (Although there are plenty of contenders).

Scandalous.
A Chorus Line played its final Broadway performance on August 17, 2008. The tour played its final performance on August 21, 2011. A new non-equity tour started in October 2012 played its final performance on March 23, 2013.

Chaplin. Never seen it. The artwork just really irked me. Yellow and purple? I don't think so.

Nice to know you judge a show entirely on the merits of its artwork.

Magic/Bird-Only because I liked everything else I saw and did not see most of the other shows mentioned already.

The worst show of this year was Roundabout's LOOK BACK IN ANGER.

When the bottom of the barrel is so crowded that it nearly reaches the brim, how can one choose the worst among them?

For that reason, I'll have to name more than a few that vie for that dubious distinction, thankful for the ones I've mercifully forgotten, or better yet, missed:

Through the Yellow Hour, Lonely, I'm Not, Detroit, What Rhymes With America?, Assistance, Heresy, Bad Jews, If There Is...., Dead Accounts, The Performers, The Anarchist, Heartless, Medieval Play, We Play for the Gods, Murder Ballad, Yosemite, Once .....

Was that heinous 4th rate high school level musical Lucky Guy in 2012?

If so, that.

I assume the call for ONCE was sincere as I was a fan of the movie and expected a smooth transition to stage - NOT SO! It did nothing for me and thought all the Czechs were like Eastern European cartoons. I'm still convinced Glen Hansard hates it.

Worst? I'm sure DON'T DRESS FOR DINNER (though fun) was not as good and THE BEST MAN - really? If they didn't cast every other Emmy winner from 10-20 years ago, there would have been nothing there.

Medieval Play.

I also thought Don't Dress for Dinner, Golden Age, The Lyons, and Cheek by Jowl's 'Tis Pity She's a Whore were pretty bad.

Tie between Evita and Leap of Faith. Honestly, I never cared for Evita even when I saw it with Patti and Mandy years ago.
"are you two going to renew your vows"? "Why, did they expire??"
