Trivia & History

The production was here from Israel as a limited engagement. Originally scheduled to run through December 8, 1968, good reviews led to an announcement of an extension through January 5, 1969, but it ended up running only till December 15, just one week past the originally announced closing date. It then toured and it came back for another limited run in April 1969.
