Trivia & History

On May 18, 1922, it was reported in the New York Times that Love and Kisses would open a pre-Broadway tryout in Atlantic City on June 5, and that it would open in New York two weeks later. An unenthusiastic reception led to an extension of the pre-Broadway tryout, during which major changes were made. Cast changes were made, and the chorus was reportedly cut in half, making the show more intimate.

Negative word was so prevalent that when the production played a late tryout run at the smallish Shubert Wilbur Theatre in Boston, tickets had to be sold at half-price for opening night, but it was there that the show's fortunes turned around.

By the time the production opened on Broadway, on August 28, 1922, the title had changed to The Gingham Girl, and the production was a hit.
