Some notable productions include:
Cole Porter and Moss Hart's musical Jubilee, featuring two classic Porter songs, "Begin the Beguine" and "Just One of Those Things".
Dreamgirls opened on December 20, 1981 and ran for 1522 performances. This musical featured the song "And I Am Telling You I'm Not Going", sung by Jennifer Holliday. Holliday's performance of this song stopped the show and became her signature song.
