Broadway Songs from Favorite Flops

Broadway Songs from Favorite Flops

When you think of Broadway, you probably think of a handful of uber-successful musicals that ran for years and years before closing, or perhaps you think of the select musicals and plays that have achieved Broadway prestige not just once but in multiple sold-out revival productions. But let us not forget about the many musicals whose glory, though fleeting, will be remembered with the perfect mix of nostalgia and chagrin.

From Saturday Night’s “So Many People” to Bonnie and Clyde’s “Raise a Little Hell,” we’ve compiled a playlist of some of the most memorable songs from Broadway’s favorite flops. Despite these shows’ short-lived stage time, this playlist celebrates the songs that Broadway fans everywhere will miraculously know every word to, despite likely not knowing their origins.
