According to press notes, "Sometimes Broadway musicals run forever, like Cats or Les Misérables. But sometimes, Broadway musicals run for only a minute, like Merrily We Roll Along, High Fidelity, or Via Galactica. This is their story... This edition will feature songs and untold stories about a show that closed on opening night (American Passion), a show that closed out of town (Comedy), a show that closed in workshops (Kicks The Showgirl Musical), and even an original cast member celebrating a show that closed in 1942 (Sunny River)!"
If It Only Even Runs A Minute is created and hosted by 54 Below director of programming Jennifer Ashley Tepper and Book of Mormon's Kevin Michael Murphy, with musical direction by Joshua Zecher-Ross.
