There had been plans to transfer the production to Broadway, but the combination of one of the coldest, harshest winters in New York as well as Desert Storm prevented the move.
The performance total for the run has sometimes been given as 73. That would include both previews and performances from opening night to closing. As far as we can tell, however, the total was 72 — 47 previews and 25 performances. We are basing this on the date of the first preview, the performance schedule, the opening performance date, and the closing date. It may be that an extra performance was added at some point, which would increase the total to 73, but if one was added, we don't know whether it was during previews or after the opening (or whether there really was an extra performance at all). So for now we list 47 previews and 25 performances, pending further info.
