Trivia & History

The pre-Broadway tryout was originally announced to start on September 10, 1951, with a week's run at the Shubert in New Haven, but that run seems to have been canceled. Instead, the production played its first pre-Broadway performance on September 17 at the Shubert in Philadelphia, which originally was to have been the second stop on the tour.

The production was originally announced to open on Broadway at the Winter Garden on October 15, 1951, but that was also postponed, and the theatre in which the production would open was shifted to the Shubert. The postponed opening at the Shubert was originally announced for November 5, but that was further postponed to November 12. At the time of the delay to November 5, it was announced that there would be several Broadway previews starting November 1, but those also may have been delayed. At that time, previews were often benefit performances sold to theatre parties. Most shows did not advertise previews and so it often can be difficult to be sure when they started and how many there were. We do know that there were previews for Paint Your Wagon on at least November 8 and 9.
