(Is there a difference between a debacle and a flop and a bomb?)

Actually, there is a difference between a flop and the others. A debacle or a bomb, I think, are both generally understood to indicate a show that is truly terrible and closes immediately. A flop may also be that, but it means more generally any show that loses money, whether it runs 8 performances or 800, and regardless of the quality of the show.
