Very fair. Neither were flops at all. Though I do think of Rothschilds as a bit of a flop recording since its time, because it is not celebrated, discussed or performed the way many others are (including by the same writers). Neither show had much major life since their initial Broadway run. But The Rothschilds did, much much more than The Life, but it's more than it is not done anymore and has been done much since I've been seeing musicals. But I also forgot about the off-broadway production in 1990 and the well received 2015 revision at the York retitled "Rothschild and Sons".
