What's the longest a Broadway show has ran without getting any Tony or Drama Desk nominations? This excludes shows like Oklahoma that premiered before the Tony Awards existed.

Oh! Calcutta! is the longest running show with no Tony nominations (since the inception of the Tonys), at 5,959 performances.

"You travel alone because other people are only there to remind you how much that hook hurts that we all bit down on. Wait for that one day we can bite free and get back out there in space where we belong, sail back over water, over skies, into space, the hook finally out of our mouths and we wander back out there in space spawning to other planets never to return hurrah to earth and we'll look back and can't even see these lives here anymore. Only the taste of blood to remind us we ever existed. The earth is small. We're gone. We're dead. We're safe." -John Guare, Landscape of the Body

OK, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. You now know what you have to do.

Other trivia - Jekyll & Hyde was the only musical not nominated for "Best Musical" in the 96-97 season (out of 5) and was the longest running of them all (4 years). Titanic won that year (and ran for 2 years).
