Does anyone know what Broadway shows closed after one regular performance besides Moose Murders? I was just really curious.

How could I have forgotten Home Sweet Homer?

I saw it & have a signed Playbill with (allegedly) an autograph from Yul himself on the front.

Wasn't La Strada with Bernadette Peters a 1 performance flop?

I do believe La Strada was a 1 hit flop.

Speaking of flops, since someone else resurrected a discussion on Ken Mandelbaum, I hope he does a sequel or update to "Not Since Carrie". I love that book, and have re-read it a couple of times.

Maybe he could do British flops (since I enjoyed the "What a Carrie On" thread on the West End board). I especially was interested in all the shows that played decent to boffo box-offices here, and then flopped over there.
Xanadu! Can't cry on cue!

Yes, but do we really need another book on the musicals of Andrew Lloyd Webber?

There have been many shows that did well on Broadway and not so well in London. 1776. RENT. BRIGADOOON. FINIAN'S RAINBOW. SWEENEY TODD.

I think it's just the Brits appreciate theatrical specatacle and are not as interested in solid book musicals.

Cast albums are NOT "soundtracks."
Live theatre does not use a "soundtrack." If it did, it wouldn't be live theatre!

I host a weekly one-hour radio program featuring cast album selections as well as songs by cabaret, jazz and theatre artists. The program, FRONT ROW CENTRE is heard Sundays 9 to 10 am and also Saturdays from 8 to 9 am (eastern times) on www.proudfm.com

Saw HOME SWEET HOMER during the preBroadway tryouts in Toronto, Boston, Chicago and in NYC previews. It was good in Toronto but got worse with every tryout after that. It was amazing how they cut the fun things and tried to make it serious. Brynner was fun, but was in a disguise for most of the show. He refused to sign programs even when I saw him backstage while meeting with another cast member. Diener was an impossible DIVA and one of the real problems with the show, but as wife of the director she could do what she wanted.
In the NYC preview, two women were sitting behind me and could not tell Brynner in the make up and kept asking each other when he was going to come on stage.

LONE STAR LOVE closed out-of-town... Ah well.

I had front row seats at the Belasco this past December (Wednesday, the 7th @ 8:00pm to be exact!) I was going strictly for Cuccioli, a hero of mine (a-duh!)
