Closed after 199 performances due to Miss Burnett's illness, reopened 15 Feb 1965 for a total run of 271 performances
According to Steven Suskin's The Sound of Broadway Music, Ralph Burns was hired as the sole orchestrator, but he was also working on Funny Girl (also by composer Jule Styne, who was producing Fade Out—Fade In in addition to writing the music). When the out-of-tryout for Funny Girl was extended so that considerable additional work could be done on it, Burns was not available to Fade Out—Fade In. Ray Ellis became the primary orchestrator, but with Fade Out also undergoing considerable revision, several other orchestrators were called in to help.
