Trivia & History

Phil Regan — playing the dual roles of Alex Barton and Alexandre, a patriot — was replaced during the pre-Broadway tryout by Ronald Graham. A settlement was reached in which Regan was paid $6,000 as compensation for the cancelation of his contract.

For some reason, possibly just carelessness, Graham was listed only as Alex Barton in the Broadway playbills, even though he took over both roles, which were specifically meant to be played by the same actor. It may be that this mistake (if mistake it was) was corrected at some point during the run.
