Original Broadway Production (1966)
The tryout had been scheduled to open on Tuesday, September 6, 1966, after a single preview the night before. Because of "technical difficulty with complicated scenery" (or so Variety reported), the preview on September 5 was canceled, and the opening delayed to the Saturday evening performance on September 10. Previews started on the date that was originally scheduled as the opening.
By the New York opening, the scenery in the first act had been reconceived and greatly simplified.See more
