The Broadway Curtain Closes

Some trivia I saw on Twitter: this Monday was the first day since February 5th 1979 that there isn’t a show on Broadway by either Andrew Lloyd Webber or Stephen Sondheim. End of an era I guess.

Ah, Merrily We Roll Along just closed on 7/7.

Take it away, boys:

That’s good news for Bialystock and Bloom, eh? :smile:

Whose photograph is on the piano in that clip?

That is a mind-blowing fact. I’m not sure how much it speaks to the quality of their work (although there is no question in my mind that both are inner-circle Hall-of-Famers) versus Broadway’s risk aversion (better to go with the known quantity than the unknown potential goldmine).
