Well, that's the theory behind the the award-winning concert series, It It Only Even Runs A Minute, which will celebrate its 9th incarnation on March 26th at Joe's Pub.
Runs A Minute celebrates the flop, er, "underappreciated musical" by using some of the most appreciated talents the business has to offer. Dee Hoty, Kate Shindle, Julia Murney, Cady Huffman, David Shire, and Richard Maltby, Jr. are just a few of the names that will be sharing stories and songs from the aforementioned unmentionable musicals that had abbreviated runs.
Oh what the heck, they were flops. And they are funny.
