From the 1950's through the 1980's, eccentric and avant-garde Italian composer Spumon DeCarlo penned and produced over a dozen regrettable musicals that all bombed on Broadway.
Success and fame find DeCarlo forty years after his last musical when his grandson Gino posts videos of his productions on social media, skyrocketing DeCarlo to instant viral celebrity and international acclaim from a new generation of theatergoers.
Join us as the American Theatre Endowment honors Spumon DeCarlo with a lifetime achievement award for his invaluable contribution to American Musical Theatre.
Don't miss this laugh-out-loud and delightfully offensive musical comedy celebrating life, love, death and disaster.
Tenaya Conklin will host this one man, one woman, new works workshop performance!
Music, lyrics and book by John Bisceglie.
“Hilariously clever with non-stop energy!”
“Flop, a lifetime of regrettable musicals,” is highly entertaining and full of charm!”
“Laughed so hard my stomach hurt! Every “flop” musical was very cleverly written and the music was amazing!”
“The most hilarious disaster I’ve seen in a long time! I enjoyed every cringe worthy moment!”
“A perfect and surprisingly musically nuanced sendup of the most terrible broadway show ideas you can imagine.”
“Musical theater doesn’t get much funnier than this. I laughed, I groaned, I laughed so hard I nearly wet myself!”
“The best of the worst musicals that never made it past their miserable debuts. Comedic genius or idiot savant… your call!”
“Flop had me laughing from beginning to end. What a treat to live in a world where any mundane, tragic, or terrible things could one day become a spectacular musical!”
