Getting some great feedback so far.
Starlight Express at the Gershwin, I understand that the bridge failed, but luckily it failed in a good position, where it was still usable and the tickets weren't selling and the repair cost was prohibitive, so they left it?
Also reading about Grand Hotel and Sweeney Todd there seems a good case of doing a thread, right show, wrong theatre?
With regard to shows from WE to Broadway bombing, Sandy Wilson talked in an old TV documentary I watched recently (recommended by a poster on the old board) of The Boyfriend. Successful here but ruined by Broadway producers when they tried to turn it into a burlesque show. SW disagreed with them but was literally thrown out of the theatre for daring to have his say about his show!
