Although Variety reported that the production played 21 previews, a piece of misinformation that was repeated in Theatre World and has been repeated since in other sources, it played only 15 previews. The first preview was on Monday, December 28, 1970. For the two full of weeks previews, it played seven performances each week (Monday through Saturday evenings, with one weekly matinee on Saturday). The final preview was on Monday, January 11, 1971.
The show opened on Tuesday, January 12, 1971. It closed the following evening rather than playing through the end of the week. On closing day, it played its one and only Wednesday matinee.
