Derived in part from the film version of Jules Verne's novel Around the World in 80 Days that Michael Todd produced. The first attempt at a stage version was performed at Madison Square Garden in 1957, as a 'Ballet Ballad' with full chorus telling the story while the dancing took place. This version toured and was finally made into a full-fledged musical with book by Sig Herzig and additional music by Sammy Fain.
On the major-credits page of the program for the production at Jones Beach in 1963, Herzig, Adamson and Fain were listed left to right, with their respective credits for book, lyrics and music.

Michael Todd was acknowledged. At the top of the page, it read:
