Trivia & History

The production played 15 previews. Various sources over the years have mistakenly reported that it played 11 previews. The error originated in the issue of Variety dated March 28, 1979. The error was later picked up by other publications and later still by websites, some of which may have gotten the wrong information from secondary sources rather than directly from Variety.
