Why Are Some Musicals So Rarely Performed?

I live in the LA area and go to a LOT of local theater -- mostly musicals (of course.) I mean probably an average of 30-40 productions a year. I'e seen "Avenue Q" four times; "The Full Monty" four times, multiple productions of "Merrily We Roll Along," "Company," "Sweeney Todd," "Miss Saigon," "Guys and Dolls", "Gypsy," "Putnam County Spelling Bee," "West Side Story," "The Drowsy Chaperone," "City of Angels," "Many of La Mancha," "La Cage Aux Folles," "Hair," "Urinetown," etc. But I've NEVER, not once, not even on one of my every-few-years trips to NYC seen: Mame Hello, Dolly Funny Girl The Sound of Music On A Clear Day You Can See Forever Paint Your Wagon Gigi Bells Are Ringing and others ... Any ideas why these seem to be so rarely performed, at least in my area?
