The thing Broadway producers don't seem to fathom (as reported in Patrick Healy's article in The New York Times January 7th) is that musicals by their very nature are not always feel-good events. And so The Last Ship will inevitably sink on Jan. 24 after a four-month run.

Every year I hear about the death of the new musical. Wholly original shows -- or, hell, just shows with new scores (it's hard to be truly "original" these days) -- get bad reviews and people act like there will never be a new musical again. It's not altogether consistent or logical when this hand-wringing occurs.
