Trivia & History

Different sources give different performances totals for the run. Some sources did not deduct the correct number of canceled performances due to the musicians strike in September and October 1975. One source made the further mistake of adding the previews to an incorrect total of post-opening performances. Adding insult to injury, that source had the wrong number of previews.

As far as we can tell, the correct total number of performances (not including previews) was 907, following 25 previews, not 24, as erroneously estimated in some sources.
