Trivia & History

Some sources state that the production lost $1,000,000, and that it was the first Broadway musical to lose that much money. When it closed, however, Variety stated that it had lost $375,000 on an investment of $500,000. It may be that Variety was correct, or nearly, but cost overruns during the tryout may have been so huge that the show might have ended up costing more than $1,000,000.
