A Bernstein Flop?

A musical written by the master of the American musical is getting revisited for his 90th birthday.

Composer Leonard Bernstein wrote a play in 1976 called "1600 Pennsylvania Avenue". The play did not do well at all and was pulled very shortly after its opening.

This year, the New York Time reports an adaptation of the work will be given a second chance.

Perhaps everyone is so sick of hearing "West Side Story", that they're picking a flop just so everyone won't be bored.

Maybe when Spielberg turns 90, they'll re-screen 1941.
