Trivia & History

For this production, "Pirate Jenny" was moved to the second act for Lotte Lenya to sing. Polly (Jo Sullivan) was given "Bide-a-Wee in Soho" during the stable scene to give her something to sing in its place. It remained that way through the run. The official list of musical numbers for the Blitzstein translation as licensed can be found on the page for the Biltzstein translation. It may be that some later productions of the Blitzstein translation, especially during the 1960s, included "Bide-a-Wee in Soho," although it's not clear that the song was ever officially part of the licensed script or even officially offered as an option.
