I only became acquainted with MAME the musical during the pandemic. I don’t think it’s getting revived anytime soon without a revamp of the title song. Which is probably why it hasn’t had a major revival in a decade or so.
One Rudin-adjacent question, did people like how his ads reused quotes from the original production? I had a hard time reconciling it. On the one hand, it was historically fascinating to see how the critics raved about the original production. On the other hand, it felt really disingenuous and undeserved - and didn’t always match the reality of the current production.
