Trivia & History

This tour was the last show to play at Ford's Theatre in Baltimore. After the curtain calls on closing night of the run, the production's star, Jerry Lester, made a speech, starting with: "Ladies and gentlemen, in order to get the demolition off to a good start, the management would like you to take your seats home with you." He turned serious: "The legitimate stage was once described as 'the fabulous invalid.' Tonight, ladies and gentlemen, we have lost the patient." Then he led the audience in a chorus of "Auld Lang Syne." On Monday morning (after that Saturday evening performance), the demolition started.
