Trivia & History

It had been announced in the New York Times on June 20, 1956, that the choreography would be provided by Tom Brown, who was the assistant to the production's director, Tyrone Guthrie. When the production opened on Broadway, the playbill's title page featured no credit for choreography or dances or musical staging.

In the program for the Boston tryout, Wallace Seibert received a credit as "Dance Assistant to Mr. Brown," while Brown was credited on the title page as Guthrie's assistant (which may have been the only credit he was ever expected to receive). Seibert's credit was rather inconspicuously placed after the list of musical numbers, along with the credits for the assistants in various production areas. At this time, Seibert was also a member of the dance ensemble. By the Broadway opening, Seibert was no longer in the cast.

At some point, Anna Sokolow was brought in to do additional work on the dances. Her only credit in the Broadway playbill was a vague expression of appreciation from the management "for her assitance," while Seibert was credited as "Dance Supervisor." Both credits were placed after the list of musical numbers.
