You're The Flop Is a Hit!

You're The Flop opened last weekend, and audiences loved it! It was truly amazing to work 

on a show from its inception to its opening. The cherry on top is that audiences also enjoy 

the production! Aaron Conklin from Madison Magazine gives us a few nice compliments, 

like "Music Theatre of Madison’s original production You’re the Flop—playing June 12–14 

in the Bartell Theatre—is full of clever and creative touches" and "you realize you’ve learned

 as much as you’ve been entertained. And it’s not every show that can say that." in his blog 

review. In The Isthmus' review  Gwen Rice writes "Perhaps the most surprising thing about 

the hour-long production is how well all the music flows together to tell a coherent story. 

The tuneful numbers, from such diverse composers as Marvin Hamlisch, Stephen 

Sondheim, Kander and Ebb, Leonard Bernstein, and Boy George, seem perfectly chosen for 

the slight narrative and work together as a harmonious score." and finishes with the

 perfect statement, "At the end of the show, we're no closer to determining the elusive X-

factor that separates success from failure on Broadway, but it's easy to see that You're the

 Flop is anything but."
