let's hear it for the flops

with the loss of Ted Hook's Backstage & Barrymore's I guess the only theater restaurant from my past that's still around is Joe Allen.

the wall on the restaurant side is a sort of Hall of Fame for Broadway flops. here is a display of the posters of those shows.

Had to repost. This was fun, amazing how many big stars were involved in these turkeys and all the big names behind the footlights. They left out a turkey that we saw together Night Watch, boy was that bad.

I enjoyed looking through that site. It reminded me of a Tom Petty song lyric: " baby, even the losers get lucky sometimes / even the losers keep a little bit of pride." I'm always interested in the so-called losers. I guess I identify with them and their lost or almost-made-it causes. Thanks for the link to that site.

Take care,
