Trivia & History

The date on which the revised and shortened version of the show — the version in which both "Then You May Take Me to the Fair" and "Fie on Goodness!" were cut, and some other revisions were made — was first performed for audiences seems to have been March 20, 1961. 

This was the week after three leading members of the cast — Richard Burton, Julie Andrews and Robert Goulet — had appeared on The Ed Sullivan Show and performed several numbers. That appearance has always been pointed to as the time when the public's perception of the show changed from it being viewed as something of a disappointment to it being viewed as a hit that people wanted to see. The Sullivan Show performances were on March 19.

Interestingly, Burton missed the performance on Tuesday, March 21, and was out again on Wednesday and perhaps on Thursday as well, according to news reports at the time. A virus was said to have been the cause. His understudy, John Cullum, substituted for him. Perhaps having rehearsed the changes and the Sullivan Show performances the previous week while also performing the opening-night version of the show left him a bit run down.
