Boss -- The Musical - the Stagebill program; I don't know how long it ran, but I remember enjoying it (I turned 14 the month it premiered in June of 1973). It certainly had some top-flight people on-board, including Lou Conte and Dick O'Neill. Frank Galati won his first Jeff Award for it, and note the late (and eventual free-jazz icon and leader of the NRG Ensemble) Hal Russell on percussion
