What do you think of when you think of Joe Allen? Maybe it’s the great food, or the star sightings any patron is likely to have. But most people associate the restaurant with its legendary “flop wall” featuring posters of Broadway’s shortest-running shows: Moose Murders, Scandalous, Rags, and more. Charles Kirsch, the host of theater podcast Backstage Babble, will take a deep dive into some of these under appreciated shows with first hand accounts and performances by the performers who were there. Any die-hard Broadway fan won’t want to miss hearing these stories. Music direction/accompaniment by Michael Lavine.
