I found memorabilia from two shows that didn't have long runs on Broadway, and it made me think. What are your favorite shows that lasted less than a year on Broadway? The two that come to mind for me are Bandstand and Amelie.
American Psycho and Bullets Over Broadway immediately came to mind for me.
Bridges of Madison County, Bonnie and Clyde (it was flawed, I know, but I still love it)
Caroline, or Change - One of my favorite scores ever and a wonderful productionA Catered Affair - Beautiful score with a superb cast
Oh yeah, Scottsboro Boys! What a truly excellent show that never received the accolades or attention it deserved. I really feel that if someone jumped on this and did a revival soon it could be a hit. Cast Todrick Hall as one of the "women," Corbin Bleu in the Colman Domingo role and get David Hyde Pierce as the Interlocutor. I think with current culture re-examining our past through today's lens, this could be something truly special! Would love to see a person of color direct this time around as well and see what new light they could shed on the piece - George C. Wolfe would be fascinating!
The Visit. It was weird and ugly-pretty in exactly the way I like.
spongebob, head over heels, groundhog day, and great comet. i miss comet so much that i flew to japan just to see it
American Psycho, The Visit, Great Comet, Hands on a Hardbody- if for nothing else giving us Keala's break out performance!
Shuffle Along. That one still stings.
Some recent ones that come to mind:AMERICAN PSYCHOA CATERED AFFAIR (this one really deserves a second look - what a beautiful, quiet score).THE BRIDGES OF MADISON COUNTYBONNIE & CLYDE
Lots of goodies listed. Bandstand, Ghost, & even JCS 2012 revival were good.But, favorite is probably Xanadu... if that counts, because i think it ran for two years.
Hands on a Hardbody, what a spectacular show! Tuck Everlasting was also a pleasure
Lysistrata Jones was a whole lot of fun
I forgot about the Superstar 2012 revival. I still long for a cast album. It was such a great cast.
Amour. It has a wonderful score and the cast sounded great on it.Scottsboro Boys is easily one of the best shows I've ever seen.
