Charles Strouse, Lee Adams, and William F Brown's A BROADWAY MUSICAL, which closed on its opening night in 1978. Disappearing after one performance, and leaving no cast album behind, the score of A BROADWAY MUSICAL has long been a mystery amongst musical theatre fans.
A BROADWAY MUSICAL was a satire loosely based around Charles Strouse and Lee Adams' experiences turning Clifford Odets' dramatic masterpiece Golden Boy into a Broadway musical for Vegas mainstay Sammy Davis, Jr.
A BROADWAY MUSICAL focuses on a young African-American playwright as he watches his play turn from a searing sports drama into a musical comedy for a Vegas megastar. As the playwright fights for his words, he has to navigate around schmoozing producers, egomaniacal stars, psychedelic composers, and the ultimate power in the 1970s theatre community: theatre party ladies.
Songs from A BROADWAY MUSICAL include: "Smashing, New York Times," "You Gotta Have Dancing," "Lawyers,", "Broadway, Broadway," and "Yente Power"
Robert W Schneider, of Behind the Curtain: Broadway's Living Legends, is directing and producing the concert.
A BROADWAY MUSICAL will be music directed by Joshua Zecher Ross with Andrew Garrett Karl serving as projections designer.
Additional casting will be announced at a later date.
