Sometimes Broadway musicals run forever, like Cats or Les Miserables. But sometimes, Broadway musicals run for only a minute, like Merrily We Roll Along, High Fidelity, or Via Galactica. This is their story.
If It Only Even Runs A Minute is the Bistro Award-winning concert series celebrating rare songs, behind-the-scenes tales, and inspiring photos from underappreciated musicals. Created and hosted by Feinstein’s/54 Below Creative and Programming Director Jennifer Ashley Tepper and Book of Mormon‘s Kevin Michael Murphy, with musical direction by Joshua Zecher-Ross, each concert includes performances and stories from original cast members and writers of selected featured shows, as well as new interpretations.
The 17th edition of the concert will feature performances from an amazing lineup of Broadway stars to be announced, and will feature stories about & songs from an incredible array of musicals.
Previous editions of Runs A Minute have played at the New York Musical Theatre Festival, Caroline’s on Broadway, The Laurie Beechman Theatre, Joe’s Pub and Le Poisson Rouge. So far, the series has included over 300 performers and over 175 featured musicals, as well as many songs that have never before been recorded.
