|Sometimes Broadway musicals run forever, like Cats or Les Miserables. 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 and Programming Director Jennifer Ashley Tepper and Book of Mormon's Kevin Michael Murphy, with musical direction by Geoffrey Ko, 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.
Please note that all artists and acts are subject to change at any time.
Doors open at 9:00pm.
Additional food and beverage minimum of $25.
