When ÊEvitaÊ opened on Broadway during the 1979-1980 season it was (as one of its songs said) High Flying Adored. But in the 1970-71 season the producers of ÊLolita My LoveÊ saw their show (as one of its songs said) Going Gone Gone after its torturous Philadelphia and Boston tryouts. It didn't even try to brave Broadway although the bookwriter-lyricist of ÊMy Fair LadyÊ had written it.ÞÞIt happens every season. Broadway has one two or a few hit musicals but many many more flops. Here's a look at the extreme cases from each season of the past half-century. The musicals that everyone knew would be hits ä ÊThe Sound of MusicÊ ÊThe Phantom of the OperaÊ ÊThe ProducersÊ ä and were. The tuners that sounded terrible from the moment they were announced ä ÊVia GalacticaÊ ÊThe Civil WarÊ ÊLestatÊ ä and turned out to be even worse than anyone expected. The shows that were destined to succeed ä ÊBreakfast at Tiffany'sÊ Ê1600 Pennsylvania AvenueÊ ÊMerrily We Roll AlongÊ ä but didn't. The ones that didn't have a chance ä ÊMan of La ManchaÊ Ê1776Ê ÊGreaseÊ ä but went on to household-name status.ÞÞYes Broadway is the oldest established permanent non-floating crap game in New York and Peter Filichia takes a look at 100 shows that met either the most glorious or the most ignominious fates.
