Trivia & History

Star Vivien Leigh won excellent reviews, along with a Tony award, for her performance, but she was going through a difficult time mentally and perhaps physically as well. According to published interviews with cast members, she took a dislike to her co-star, Jean-Pierre Aumont, and she tried to get him replaced. Still, she managed to play the role on Broadway for more than six months before any serious problems occurred.

Then, at the matinee on Saturday, Sept. 28, 1963, just before the production was to shut down for a week before re-opening at another theatre, she seemed to have some kind of breakdown during the performance. She managed to complete it, but she was replaced for the evening performance by her understudy, Joan Copeland (who had subbed for her for seven performances when she'd had a virus in August and perhaps on some other occasions). 

By Sept. 30, Leigh was in a nursing home in London. Her agent told the press that she would return to New York and to the show when it re-opened the following week, but she did not. Joan Copeland subbed from Oct. 7 through Oct. 19, until Eva Gabor was ready to take over. Business, however, was not good with Gabor. The production had received mixed reviews, with only Leigh being praised by almost all the critics, and the public was not interested in the show without Leigh. It closed on Nov. 9.
