Trivia & History

George Abbott (who wrote the script) was called to Boston, where the production was in its pre-Broadway tryout. Director Worthington Miner had rewritten the script so much that the plot was getting lost. Composer Richard Rodgers called Abbott at his home in Palm Beach and asked him to step in as director. Abbott told him, "You had your chance at me; now I've got other kinds of involvements." Rodgers replied, "It doesn't matter. You're the co-author and you're obligated to come up here."

Abbott took over as director and reinstuted his original script, however Miner retained credit. (Abbott had originally been announced as director but proved to be too busy.)
