The Broadway songwriting duo of John Kander and Fred Ebb created enduring musicals like "Cabaret" and "Chicago." Then there is the duo's 1966 show "Go Fly a Kite."

It wasn't a flop. It just wasn't intended for the public. "Go Fly a Kite" was an "industrial musical," a genre created when American industry was booming and businesses wanted fully staged live shows for corporate meetings or events. Many shows were Broadway-quality, with full sets, costumes, orchestras and plots, but they were written as infotainment that could span a day, with speeches in-between, or be performed in a meeting session. "Go Fly a Kite" ran at the Fifth Electric Utility Executives Conference in Williamsburg, Va., with songs including "PDM (Power Distribution Management) Can Do." Read more at link above.
