Question 7

Name either the movie or musical. Costing more than $8 million to stage in 1988, this musical's closure after 5 performances ranks it among the most expensive flops in Broadway history. Despite many remaining sold out shows, terrible reviews scared the financial backers out. A 2012 Off-Broadway revival made it to 46 performances, and is the source of the only official cast album. Identify this musical which opens in a high school gym class, and ends with the high school and town completely destroyed as revenge for some really bad bullying.
