Trivia & History

The tour's longest run was in Chicago, where it ran at the Shubert for 67 weeks, from November 14, 1950, through February 23, 1952.

The tour returned to Chicago in 1955, this time playing at the Opera House. The second run in Chicago was to have been three weeks, from Sunday, March 6, 1955, through Saturday, March 26, but it closed a week early after receving negative reviews. The critics complained that the Opera House was too big for the show, and the production was in ragged shape.

This was the final engagement of the tour. The Rodgers and Hammerstein Fact Book incorrectly lists the tour's closing date as March 26, as would have been true if the second Chicago run had not closed a week early.
