Early in the run, three cast members left the production:
Tony Bavaar joined the cast on February 8, 1954. At some point (possibly starting with his first performance), a new number featuring Bavaar, "Anema e Core," was added, perhaps to compensate for the cutting of "My Love Is a Wanderer."
A singer named Judy Lynn joined the cast at some point and was given some of Bergen's material. Two of Bergen's solos, "I Dare to Dream" and "The Earth and the Sky," became duets for Bavaar and Lynn. Lynn also performed "Fini," another song originally performed by Bergen.
Bavaar had still more to do in the production when Harry Belafonte left the production at the end of May. Starting on May 31, Bavaar took over at least some, perhaps all, of Belafonte's numbers.
