Trivia & History

The production played a limited run of five performances, possibly only for invited audiences. The hope seems to have been to attract backers for a Broadway production. Articles in the New York Times on August 20 and on August 29, 1971, mentioned it as a possibility for the 1971-1972 season.

On November 3, a Times theatre column started with a report that the production would open on Broadway in January, with Tony Tanner directing. The producers were to be Les Schechter and Barbara Schwei. The production was capitalized at $200,000. The production never happened.
