IF IT ONLY EVEN RUNS A MINUTE CELEBRATES THE UNDERAPPRECIATED MUSICALS OF Hal Prince-OCTOBER 18 AT 7:00 PM & 9:45 PM

Sometimes Broadway musicals run forever, like Cats or Les Misérables. But sometimes, Broadway musicals run for only a minute, like Merrily We Roll Along, High Fidelity, or Via Galactica. This is their story.

If It Only Even Runs A Minute is the Bistro Award-winning concert series celebrating rare songs, behind-the-scenes tales, and inspiring photos from underappreciated musicals. Created and hosted by Feinstein's/54 Below Creative & Programming Director Jennifer Ashley Tepper and Book of Mormon's Kevin Michael Murphy, with musical direction by Dan Garmon and piano by Alex Rybeck, each concert includes performances and stories from original cast members and writers of selected featured shows, as well as new interpretations.

The 18th edition of the concert series will be its very first with a theme: The Underappreciated Musicals of Hal Prince. During his legendary career, Prince changed Broadway forever, directing and producing shows that astonished audiences, broke new ground, and altered our idea of what theatre could be. Many of these shows became landmark hits - but what about the ones that didn't?

In this special edition of Runs A Minute, experience stories about and songs from Hal's underappreciated musicals - the ones that took risks, flew high, changed lives - and closed too soon. How did Merrily and Superman, Grind and Flora, Tickets, Please! and The Petrified Prince, shape the career of one of Broadway's most influential artists, even though his name is in the history books because of Cabaret and Phantom, Fiddler and Sweeney?

The 18th edition of Runs A Minute will feature performances from an amazing lineup of Broadway stars to be announced. Expect original cast and team members from Hal's shows, new interpretations of songs that have never been recorded, and a celebration of the man who inspired generations of theatergoers and theatermakers with his shows, no matter how long they ran.

Previous editions of Runs A Minute have played at the New York Musical Theatre Festival, Caroline's on Broadway, The Laurie Beechman Theatre, Joe's Pub and Le Poisson Rouge. So far, the series has included over 300 performers and over 200 featured musicals, as well as many songs that have never before been recorded.
