Not Since Carrie: Forty Years of Broadway Musical Flops

by

Not Since Carrie: Forty Years of Broadway Musical Flops Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Not Since Carrie is Ken Mandelbaums brilliant survey of Broadway's biggest flops. This highly readable and entertaining book highlights almost 200 musicals created between 1950 and 1990, framed around the notorious musical adaptation of Carrie, and examines the reasons for their failure. "Essential and hilarious," raves The New Yorker, and The New York Times calls the book "A must-read."

Synopsis:

From such legendary catastrophes as Breakfast at Tiffany's and Carrie to the failures of Alan Jay Lerner and Rodgers and Hammerstein, this hilarious account of some "lost" theatre history provides stories of nearly 200 musical flops that played from 1950 to 1991. "Best Theatre Book of 1991".--USA Today. 150 photographs.
