Trivia & History

George S. Irving was originally cast as Sandor. The afternoon that he was cast, director/choreographer Jerome Robbins called him and said that they hired Eddie Lawrence and that Irving could take another role and understudy Sandor. He needed the money, so he stayed, but he didn't stay for long. On March 9, 1957, three-and-a-half months after the opening, he left the show to take a role in Shinbone Alley, but that show ended up having a short run.
