Synopsis


Trivia & History

According to the book Stephen Sondheim by Martin Gottfried, the first choice for the lead was Phil Silvers.  When Silvers turned it down, it was announced with Milton Berle as the star.  The same source also states that Burt Shevelove and Larry Gelbart wrote nearly a dozen versions of the script before settling on the one that was produced on Broadway.
