Trivia & History

Some online sources incorrectly give the date of the first Broadway preview as May 17, 1962. The production started Broadway previews on May 16. 

The production went on hiatus after the performance on July 14, 1962, due to awful grosses. It was announced that the show would re-open after Labor Day. It was hoped that once the summer slump that used to afflict Broadway was over, grosses would improve significantly. When the production re-opened on Friday, September 7, it was quickly clear this was not going to happen to anything like a degree that would justify keeping the show running. It closed permanently the following weekend.
