Trivia & History

This was a planned Pre-Broadway tour.  There is a long-standing rumor that Debbie (not Deborah as she has come to be billed) had broken her foot, leading to the tours cancellation. However, the notices were less than great and the booking for Denver (November 12-24) was cancelled.  This would have been fine, had the dates in California not required rescheduling ontop of a built-in two week rest period.  This gave the production a gap of 7 weeks without performances.  

In an article with Playbill, producer Greg Young was quoted as saying: 

\"In this business, you\'re allowed six weeks off, but after seven, you either have to post a closing notice or keep the cast on salary. That\'s a lot of money, and the show wasn\\\'t out long enough to make it worth the payroll.  So we posted a closing notice, but we\'re definitely going back out in January.\"

The proposed calendar had dates scheduled for a re-opening of January 14, 1997 in Seattle running through June 15 in Columbus.  Dates were expected to be announced for Toronto, Dallas and Montreal.  It never reopened.

When the Denver Center\'s executive producer Randy Weeks was asked about why he cancelled the booking he declined a comment other than to say that he had seen the show in Minneapolis and that, while he could offer no actual review, the fact they were cancelling it should speak for itself.

It is unknown if they were going to revise the production, the design, or even change out any cast members.
