Trivia & History

  • Some differences from the version that opened on Broadway: There's a different sequencing of numbers in the first scene at the Egermans' ("Later" precedes "Now"); a far more complex version of "The Glamorous Life," including material later restored for the national tour and the London production but not published; some underscoring that is not in the final version (though it's in the movie version); "Bang!" is there instead of "In Praise of Women" (and it's a shorter version of "Bang!" than the version published and recorded elsewhere, without any contributions from the quintet); some different lyrics in "Perpetual Anticipation"; "It Would Have Been Wonderful" is not yet in the show (though the Boston playbill for the opening listed a song titled "Thoughts on the Terrace" in that spot so clearly something was planned); and "Silly People" is in the show. 
  • The book is almost identical to the final version, with just a few small cuts and changes (perhaps most notably, a different final scene for Madame Armfeldt and Fredrika) and most of the score is in place.
