Neglected Musicals will present the Neil Simon, Marvin Hamlisch musical comedy The Goodbye Girl at Hayes Theatre Co on Monday 26 October and Sunday 1 November for 3 shows only.

Neglected Musicals presents musical theatre that has never or rarely been seen in Australia. Neglected Musicals presents a reading of a chosen show with scripts in hand, with the musical numbers sung through, after only one day's rehearsal.

The original production, directed by Michael Kidd, opened on Broadway at the Marquis Theatre on March 4, 1993 and closed on August 15, 1993 after 188 performances and 23 previews. The opening cast included Bernadette Peters as Paula McFadden and Martin Short as Elliot Garfield, marking Martin Short's Broadway debut.

Egotistical actor Elliot Garfield sublets a friend's Manhattan apartment only to discover it is still occupied by his friend's ex-girlfriend Paula, a former dancer, and her precocious pre-teen daughter Lucy. Initially suspicious and antagonistic, Elliot and Paula arrive at an uneasy truce. While attempting to cohabit as peacefully as possible, despite their differences of opinion and temperament, Elliot and Paula find themselves attracted to each other.
