A to Z Musicals ~ ♬ “Q” is for QUILTERS


“Q” is always a challenge (as are X and Z, but I don’t choose a theme unless I know I can fill each letter!)

Quilters opened on Broadway on September 25, 1984 and closed on October 14, 1984 after  just 24 performances. Despite an unfavorable review from Frank Rich in the New York Times and its own very short run, the musical was nominated for six Tony Awards, including Best Musical.

Quilters has been performed by numerous college and community theater groups across the United States.

Here, Core Theatrics presents Quilters:

  1. Yes, Q and a few others are tricky……..but I think it should be the spirit of the game and not the game by itself! I like how so many comments echo what I was thinking about the short run but the big nominations…………


  2. Am I correct in recalling a production of Quilters at Providence College? It might have been a summer production.


      1. I found my ticket stub from Providence College Summer Theatre, June 1987. All I can say is I wish the rest of my life were as organized as my photo albums from the ’80s.


  3. Well, I had to get clever with X. As usual, lol. Never heard of this musical but that short run might explain it. And if it got nominated for Best Musical, what else was in the running?
