On this week’s episode, Jamie and Rob dive into the world of famous (and infamous!) Broadway flop musicals with a special two-part show focusing on these flawed and fabulous gems. They kick it all off with a look back at “Carrie” (1988) with word from its original star, the incredible Betty Buckley, who provides a rare peak into that experience. Then, Rob and Jamie move on to discuss such musicals as “Kelly” and “Breakfast at Tiffany’s”, and some less “successful” works by Rodgers & Hammerstein and Stephen Sondheim. Part two follows next week.

This week’s music: “Overture”, “Eve Was Weak”, “Carrie”, and “Out For Blood”, from “Carrie”. “Opening: Joseph Taylor, Jr.” and “The Gentlemen Is A Dope”, from “Allegro”, “Sweet Thursday”, “Overture”, from “Pipe Dream”, “Me And My Town” from “Anyone Can Whistle”, “Overture”, “Like It Was”, from “Merrily We Roll Along”, and “Who Needs Her” from “Breakfast at Tiffany’s”.
