Trivia & History

The song list above is taken from The Rodgers and Hammerstein Fact Book (The Lynn Farnol Group; New York, 1980), edited by Stanley Green, which presumably reflects the playbill.

The "Johnny One-Note" ballet was apparently not listed separately from the song, although as you can see, all the characters in both ballets were listed there, with the actors who played them identified by the actor's name (rather than the character's primary name in the show).
